    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.

    the noise initially started as a squeaking noise and as the car warmed up it would go away. Now the noise has increased and the car shakes as you increase your speed...

    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.
