My 1998 S70 T5 makes groaning sounds when turning to the left and\nright, usually into parking spaces. I don't even have to go to a full\nturn to get the sound. Also, going a full turn is more difficult, and\nI think there actually is some rubbing on the tops of the tires.\n\nIs this a suspension issue? Over the years, I've upgraded the shocks\nand replaced the spring seats a couple times, and each of those times\nrequired the springs to be compressed a good amount. Would all these\ncompressions reduce the lifetime of the springs, or could this be a\nshock issue or something else? Incidentally, how long do stock shocks\nlast?
