    Question Volvo 850 stop washer change

    I am getting ready to replace the front struts in my 1993 Volvo 850. On page 10-6 of the Haynes Repair Manual, paragraph 10 states that the 1993 850 came with a thicker (.275") stop washer which should be replaced with the thinner (.118") version that was used in subsequent model years. What is the reason for this recommended change? Would it be a problem if I stayed with the original design arrangement?

    Thanks,
    Robert

    Robert - Volvo does not give a reason for making the change, just says to make the change when you're replacing the strut. There are no TSB's or Recalls in regards to making this change. We will look into this to see if we can find anything out and if we can we will post what we find.
