    When you're sat in the car with no passenger the right hand front will squat slightly more, especially if you're a big unit , this will definately cause excess rubbing in the arch. Coupled with normal spring sag and poor alignment. There could be excess wheel camber on the right side more than the left.
    I would take the car to an alignment center and have them check and adjust with YOU sat in the car.

    That looks disgusting! Clearly it's never been changed. If I were you Pete, I'd use the recent Haldex oil change as a flush and drive the car for 100 miles then do another oil change with another filter. You never get 100% of the oil out, so when you drain it the second time I bet it's totally black again!?

    Top engine mount poly or genuine ?
    I'd go Poly but not Powerflex. I'm guessing your top mount is the later square type? There's just too much movement in those tops mounts for my liking, they're too slack. You could out the alloy bush holder and change it for an earlier round one? Loads on eBay and then you'll have more of a choice of bushes to try in the round ones.
    I currently have an Australian Superpro bush but it was needed as it's slightly softer than the Powerflex yellow due to my Top mount rear bush being PF Black series and the mounts on the strut turrets are solid alloy IPD brackets!
    If yours are still stock, then I'd go straight in with the PF yellow square mount. You won't get any engine vibration. I definately recommend stiffening them up though and fitting the PF purple bracket bushes. They remove about 80% of the engine brace play without compromising engine vibration.

    To be honest, In my experience, you've gotta play around a little with the engine mounts as no two setups are the same and everybody's opinions are different.

    I can tell you that I have absolutely no engine vibration and a solid engine brace. PF black series small rear top mount bush and Superpro blue front top mount (Round) bush.
    It's a big improvement with a hell of a lot less engine movement, no excess vibration and great throttle response with smooth gear changes.

    Yes that's another thing on the list is the alignment I need to replace some bushes on the rear so once there done I will go get it done.

    Yes the haldex filter will be getting flushed out again shortly I will disconnect the prop as I believe I've read some where that they need 're greasing the joints so while that is off I can also remove the pump and clean the screen on that.
    The next time I order from volvo I will also be getting new diff oil while I'm there.

    I noticed pfv do two types of poly bush one yellow and the other
    Purple also they can come with a new mount do most people with the square mount just normally replace it instead of pushing the old bush out?

    As for the strut brace I also need to address that as it's very slopy and has way too much moment

    It's not a strut brace as such, and they're all like that from new.
