Product Description

Description

Do you hear an annoying rubbing sound when you turn the steering wheel full lock? Volvo installs these stop limiters to prevent the tire from rubbing on the inner fender liner. After years of bumping against these limiters they compress and don't offer the same limits as when new. Replacing them will restore the original limits.

Additionally if you fit aftermarket wheels and/or change tire sizes, this can also effect clearances. By fitting a thicker stop you can prevent tire rub that occurs when changing from the factory wheel/tire combination.

Note: the thicker the steering stop, the larger the turning radius becomes on the car so there is a trade-off. The noise you hear is not a safety issue but more of an annoyance.
 

31212189 (BLUE) is for use with tire sizes 195/65 and 205/55

31212190 (WHITE) is for use with tire sizes 215/55 and 205/55

31212191 (BLACK) is for use with tire sizes 235/45, 225/45 and 235/40

Potential Product Fitment Issues

Some 2007- S60/V70 models were equipped from the factory with 2 different style control arms (aluminum or steel.)  These two styles of control arms use different steering stops and  are not interchangeable.

These steering stops fit the following models with aluminum control arms:

  • 2001-2007 S60 up to and including chassis number 626501
  • 2001-2007 V70 with Factory Code 1 up to and including chassis number 647148
  • 2001-2007 V70 with Factory Code 2 up to and including chassis number 645617
  • 1999-2006 S80

To ensure correct ordering please check your chassis number or inspect what is currently equipped on your car.
