2002 Volvo V70 XC Q&A
2002 Volvo V70 XC Question: new Sach struts "growl"
I recently had new Sach's struts, bearing and bushings installed. From the moment I picked the car up from the shop there has been a rather loud "growl" or "groan" sound when I turn the wheel either direction. Could they have been installed improperly, torqued to tight??? Or just bad strut mounts/bearings??? - Pikuni
Something is obviously wrong. I would bring the car back and make sure they drive the car with you so you can demonstrate the noise to them. There is a distinct possibility that something is assembled incorrectly. - patrick mannion
