Product 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.

Potential Product Fitment Issues

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

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.

About Genuine Volvo

Everything IPD supplies under the "Genuine Volvo" designation are the factory original Volvo parts. These are the same quality parts that you will get in the blue Volvo branded box from a dealership. All Volvo supplied Genuine Volvo parts are made to specifications by Volvo and under their strict quality control guidelines.

Volvo relies on high-quality OEM manufactures such as Lemforder, Behr, Sachs, Bosch, Valeo, Siemens, VDO, Corteco, and many more to maintain its dedication to quality and safety.

IPD is the exclusive North American distributor for Genuine Classic Volvo parts outside of the Volvo Dealership network. We are proud of our Volvo heritage dating back to 1963, a reputation that is unmatched by others in the industry.

Many may not know this but Volvo in Latin roughly translates to "to roll".  The company was founded back in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larsson as a spin-off from ball-bearing manufacturer SKF.  While the Volvo logo looks like the biology symbol for male, it's really the Swedish symbol for Iron. With a nod to its heritage in alloys, Volvo chose a logo that depicted a ring bisecting at one o’clock. Today Volvo is known around the world as one of the most iconic brands known for safety, longevity, and its enthusiast following.
