Product Description


We often get calls from Volvo owners about knocks, squeaks, rattles and clunks. Common failures that can create these noises are worn out upper front spring seats or worn out upper rear shock mounts.

Volvo front wheel drive models commonly develop a clunk in the front suspension that can be caused by worn out upper spring seats. This can occur in some models with as few as 30K miles and can be perpetuated by performance springs and shocks.

To provide increased longevity and better shock damping performance ipd has developed our own heavy duty upper spring seat. The standard spring seats have a metal sleeve which is vulcanized to the outer rubber section. This design we've found doesn't hold up all that well, especially in areas with poor road conditions. Our design incorporates a heavy duty silicone blend of rubber as well as a metal collar around the center sleeve for an extremely durable design.

Our spring seats are unlike any manufacturers design, and in bench testing of these mounts in a press we actually saw the spring seats fold in half before the center sleeve would punch through. That kind of force is way more than your car would ever go though and we're so confident in this desgin that ipd spring seats are guaranteed for life. Let these be the last set of spring seats your Volvo will ever need! 

ipd’s heavy duty spring seat features additional material in key areas to increase longevity and consistent performance without adding additional noise or vibration into the chassis. Get your vehicle back to handling like a new car and keep it that way!

We also offer standard replacement front spring seats (used on '97 and newer models) which was redesigned by the manufacturer to reduce separation between the inner steel sleeve and outer rubber insulator. While these are an improvement over the original design, we have still seen failure in as little as 30,000 miles.

We recommend replacing the upper spring seats whenever the struts are replaced as part of regular maintenance. The expense is minimal in comparison to having to do the job over later.
