I tackled the front struts in my 04 S60R . The job is pretty straightforward where i had trouble was locating and then disconecting the plug for the shocks. It was also a little difficult to remove the end link bolt as it is in tension. I ended using a long pipe to pry the control arm down and free up the tension for the upper bolt. For transfering the springs I bought a set of strut spring compressor from harbor freight for $19 and they worked just fine. One thing I did not due is the strut mounts. If I have to do them later oh well. Now I need to get a front end alignment and a SUM calibration. This was only my 2nd vehical to do the struts on and the volvo was eisier than the toyotal previa minivan. To re-connect the plug for the shocks I dropped a piece of string from the engine bay to the ground in order to tie the plug to and pull the plug up with the string. I did not take any pics.
