Front passenger side noise with bumps while driving. Bumps do not have to be significant to cause the noise to occur; things like driveway seams and less will cause it.

strut, mount, bushing- all need replacing... bought car new. This appears to be a common issue with volvos. There should be a recall for this problem.

As mentioned by others, significant noise from the passenger side front when going over the slightest bump.
both front spring seats had to be repaired. used the dealer for a painful $480, then had to get an alignment done afterwards at $150.
