Product Description


Trunk supports don't last forever. They can age slowly or fail suddenly with sudden temperature changes. You'll realize the failure immediately when the lid suddenly contacts you -- usually in the head. These supports are exceptionally heavy duty and are the perfect answer for wagons with spoilers and/or speakers installed on the tailgate.

Early 240 wagons used a shock on one side to assist opening and a latching rod on the other end to lock it open. Starting in about 1979 Volvo instead outfitted the wagons with dual assist shocks and no more locking rod. Many earlier wagons have since been converted to this "dual assist" setup.

Wagons equipped with just one assist shock require a much stronger shock to lift the tailgate. This means while both style shocks can be physically fitted to the car, the power each style packs is much different and they are not meant to be interchangeable. If your car has assist shocks on both sides, this is the correct part for your Volvo. If your Volvo still has the single assist setup with just one shock, order IPD part number 101685 (see comparable products tab).

About Aftermarket

Aftermarket parts are a reasonably priced and good alternative to OE products. We often supply aftermarket products in place of OE parts that are no longer available as well. 

Some items will be better than stock or considered an upgrade from the OE design in the aftermarket brand. 

Other items will work as a less expensive alternative to stock. 

We will not sell a product that we do not believe in, so rest assured you are fine with the aftermarket brand in most applications!

If you have any questions, contact our customer service team to advise on the best aftermarket products for your Volvo.
