    Lower suspension arm steering limiter.

    Lower suspension arm steering limiter.

    I ordered two, but they came without the pop rivets, so has anyone replaced these if so what size rivets and type did you use?
    The holes in the lugs are 4.5mm diameter so it's the length I'm after knowing.

    Or did you use an alternative fixing?

    I just use any nuts and bolts that will fit with no issues. Have you got the blue lock stops?

    Yeah, standard on P80 cars they are riveted.
    Don't have a clue about P2s etc!

    Back in your hole, Whaley boy.

    Your V70 is a P2, so completely different!

    Its confusing to a mere whale, the v70 2002 is a p 2 and the C70 is aP80 ? So the later c70's are P1 ?
    My c70 seems to be based on the 850 , whilst my V70 is an upgrade on the first generation V70 . To be honest I hardly even lift the bonnet on the C 70 it does tiny mileages , mostly mrs Orca drives it. Whereas the V70 does massive mileages, and I have been elbow deep in it many times,.. Enough times to know I would rather have had an 850.

    Wow thanks for the responses gents.

    foammanmark, Yes I obtained them from Parts Monster, Volvo genuine spare parts No. 8614258 and they arrived today. From their photo the stops are secured with hex headed bolts; in the Volvo pics their secured with rivets. Alloy rivets into steel corrosion will occur, hence my question regarding type, nickel/steel would be better; my thoughts were to keep with OEM spec, however, marine quality stainless steel bolts and lock-nuts would be more ideal.

    Orca2: C70 (I thought that I was posting on the C70 section).

    I'm just being a pedantic Orca

    P80 - 850, S70, V70 MK1, C70 MK1.
    P1, the focus based cars - S40 MK2, V50, C70 MK2, C30.

    It's a losing battle as everyone calls the first V70 a P1 when infact the P1 chassis didn't come out until 2004!

    I just sit in the corner and rock myself slowly insane while this huge miss use of Volvo chassis names goes on

    Hehe, every day is a day at school Davey.

    It is a bit confusing ... So The P1 came out after what is often called the P2 ? Which is an update of the P80 ?
    Can anyone in Sweden count ?


    Ps Burgess you did post in the C70 section , I just didnt read the header... Bad whale!

    Ah, but yours is an R...

    P1, P2, or P3?

    No confusion with 400s either.
    Nothing would want to be tarred with that brush!

    No.

    Your V70 is on the P2 platform, same as the S60, a completely different animal to the P80s.

    Only one Phase of S70R unlike the P80 V70R where the were 3 specs over the years.

    Orca, everyone is lost. It's Ford's fault! P2 is the P80 replacement and P1 is something completely different.

    As P1 and P2 were out at the same time I'm guessing Ford felt it would be clever. P1 were the smaller cars; S40, V50 etc and P2 the larger; S60, S80 and V70.

    I think I am quite possibly the only person who cares lol

    Damn. I was trying to be a smart arse @ Jamesy's post.
    I forgot they only did one phase of S70R. All on lovely M4.4

    Orca, the oracle has spoken!
