    I've checked the undercarriage of my s60 and found nothing wrong,
    it seems very tight. But sometimes when I hit a dip the front end
    makes a springy "boing" sound. I suspect it's some electronic
    thing dealing with the road (mostly noticeable when I pull into
    my driveway, hitting a swale at very low speeds). Is this a
    normal phenomenon?

    i had similar problems with mine.
    took it to the shop - it was the strut mount bushing

  3. Paul, also sounds like this, mentioned on https://www.volvotechinfo.com/

    TNN81-05-2004-03-10 Knocking noise when turning
    A knocking (or clicking) noise may occur from the front of the vehicle when
    turning, slowly going over bumps, and/or entering an inclined surface
    (driveway, parking lot etc.). The noise usually occurs when the body
    undergoes a twisting (flexing) motion.

    The noise can originate from the bumper rail contacting the front side

    Thanks. I think I need to take it for a good inspection.

    It definitely is a function of frame twist. There might be
    something happening on normal road bumps too; not sure. Not sure
    what the bumper rail is.

    Does that site give free information if you sign up? Or it is
    primarily an ordering site?

  6. It's free, but it only shows limited information unless you are a volvo
    dealer. At least you can see all the technical bulletins.

    2 Things to have checked
    1) The sway bar links this is a common problem
    2) The strut mounts do go bad but most of the time it is the sway bar links

    Is for the New York City Firemen who lost their lives on September 11,2001.
    The official count is 343, but there was also a volunteer who lost his life
    aiding in the initial rescue efforts. And I will never forget them as long
    as I live,
    nor should any American.
