So i need new struts on my AWD 2004 s60R, but i cant tell if i need the C2501 or c2502. Is there a real difference between the 2 models? rockauto has them for $640 shipped for both models, but i found the C2502's on amazon for $590 shipped. Can either one go on my R?

Thanks!

There shouldn't be any difference and you can't buy an R strut for $60 ANYWHERE, so that's not correct
Try www.tascaparts.com

What? $60? What are you on about?
probably forgot his reading glasses, I know my grandfather does the same thing :D

I don't think there is really any major difference between C2502 and C2501 as people have used both for the front with no problems from what I have read multiple times on this forum regarding these shocks. I think the difference in # is between the VR and the SR but shouldn't cause any problems.

The fronts shouldn't matter what number you use, IIRC thought only the rears are different from SR to VR.

R and VR use the same struts.

AFAIK, the difference is an ABS line clip that some have said can be replaced with a ziptie on the 2502s. I have the 2501s sitting and waiting to be installed this weekend.

The search button (or google searching this forum) is your friend. This has been covered a million times. As far as spring seats, you want XC90 or iPd HD ones. They're basically identical.
