Volvo 960 ProblemsKnocking Noise From Front Suspension
The sway bar bushings commonly wear out, causing a knocking noise from the front of the vehicle. Replacing the worn bushings should correct this concern.
Vibration problems from the rear brake rotors are common and require replacement of the pads and rotors, and the installation of special shims. The symptoms often occur when the brakes are used heavily from repeated braking, braking from high speeds, and braking while going downhill. The entire vehicle can vibrate and shudder, like it is being driven over train tracks.

The tire information label lists improper spare tire size and pressure information. Volvo originally mailed owners new labels to correct the concern, but dealers can assist free of charge also.
