So, with your encouragement, I have decided to tackle the rear shocks on my 06 XC70. Got my tools, just need to make sure I have the parts I will need. Going with FCP- the Sachs shock vs Volvo? ($40 difference each). Any preference? The shock mounts are expensive...$190 each....I assume I will need them, don't want to do this twice! What about the shock plate and shock washer? Anyone done this job that can give me feedback on what parts to have on hand...Worst thing is to take it apart and find I "SHOULD" have bought this/ or that. A.
