Does anyone know the right part numbers? I know that some of those advertised as Volvo OEM are made by Jurid, but getting the Jurid appears to be a fraction of the price.

I think the rear ones are 573149J from the link below, but there appears to be a few front variants with perhaps different wear sensor provisions?

These look like the ones you are after.

Prepare to be cleaning your wheels every week. These OEM pads are insanely dusty. I know you will get conflicting information regarding pads. I have been using Akebono pads with Brembo blank rotors on my VR for three years (on my XC70 for 7 years) now and I have no complaints about braking power in everyday driving. I don't track or autocross so I can't comment on fading, etc. but they are more than sufficient for street use and the wheels don't look like isht two days after washing them.

Plus you can buy them from FCP Euro and never have to "pay" for replacing them again.

My experience with Jurid pads is the same. Ridiculous amounts of dust in what seems like minutes.

If you care about the appearance of your wheels/car, you might look for another brand.

Thanks for the eeuropean reference, haven’t used them much since the Saab days. I wanted to at least look at options For now. This isn’t going to be a track toy so perhaps my original akebono direction is the better route.

I'm a x3 on the above comments about dust. I swapped to Akebono pads many years ago and found they don't dust the wheels even after weeks of driving between washes. I am not sure (as it's been MANY years now) if the Akebonos grab as well as the original Jurid pads. It just seems as if the braking is slightly less with the Akebonos, but as said, it has been many years and I may be remembering incorrectly.

Yes jurid is the OES... I’ve experimented with pads a bit. Keep coming back to blue box Volvo. I want pads that wear the pad not the rotor. And the bite is worth the god awful dust to me.

For the record, as someone who cleans brake dust off wheels for a living... the OEM dustier pads clean much easier. When I had my akebonos they literally stained the wheel over time and pitting was much more prevalent.

I now remember the other reason I was considering Jurid: the low or no copper marketing punchline got my attention. Maybe that is what will ultimately sway my conscience.
