Can't remember if I have two....

Maybe only one on the R since the hood is aluminum?

Haha nice. How much was the shock? Mine only has one. Since these haven't been an issue that I've ever heard of I doubt I'd get a second one but it's interesting to note. Mine also has the holes for a second shock...

Maybe after 05 they went to using only 1? Since your both 06 and both sans #2 shock.

06 and up has 1 shock and last pic you will notice it is thicker so it is stronger and that is why you only have one...P2 should be all aluminum hoods and trunk lids.

I got the shock with the hood hinge at the junk yard for 10$...drilled them out ,tapped them and bolt them on my hinge, I could have just paint it and put it on, but no I had to make it more difficult.

Not this again!! For f#$k sakes, all P2 S60/V70/XC70 have aluminum hoods. It's only not aluminum if some one replaced it with an aftermarket hood (ie; cheap bodyshop)

oh, and mine has 2.

as seen here



so looks like 04s have 2 shocks.

additional hood shock = possibly the most useless mod ever :)

If not the most useless, it is certaily in the top 5
