Front end issues common?


Asked by Nov 20, 2015 at 10:50 AM about the 2004 Volvo C70 LPT Turbo Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2004 has a terrible turning radius and makes a bit a creeky sound in tight
turns. Shop says I need new Sway Bar Links. $200 for a Swedish car specialty
shop. Is the turning radius and sway bar links LINKED?

no sway bar helps with stability

Tom Demyan

The Volvo's in that era don't have a tight turning radius to begin with, but might be time to change out the strut mounts as well? Can you have another shop look at it?
