Try "Red" at Borton Volvo.<p><A HREF="http://www.borton.com/parts_land_frameset.html" TARGET="_blank">http://www.borton.com/parts_land_frameset.html</A><p>Be aware that the dampeners (fronts only) require special pads as well.

Oops. Senior moment. You're of course right. Actually Borton (once an enthusiast's friend) is now part of the mega-merger-coporate AutoNation franchise kind of thing. Be afraid. Very afraid.<p>My apologies.<p>The new pad part numbers were part of the TNN. Maybe they're not "required" but they seemed to have been advised as part of the "squeal-like-pig" fix.
