2002 Volvo V70 XC Question: new Sach struts "growl"



Pikuni, Turbo, Waddell, AZ, September 13, 2009, 00:27

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???

    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.
