Anyone know if the '97 type 850 sedan gas trunk strut would work on a 1999 S70? They seem like similar cars, but I see big price difference!! Also, I noticed that on one website the two struts in the back of the S70 were two different part numbers, aren't they the same?

Thanks!

Im not 100% sure but if there is an option buy one for the car with trunk spoiler.They are heavy duty and about the same price.They will last longer.

That might also be the part # difference.

Actually I just remembered I think the S70 one are short.
The 850 ones go into the side by the back seat and are pretty long.

Yeah, I saw some pics of the two struts, the 850 did look longer than the s70's.

So, are you thinking that the spoiler version and the non-spoiler version are one and the same, but the spoiler one is just beefier?
Thanks,
Joe

The spoiler one is the same as the other one but it is heavier.
I always sold the one for the spoiler they would last longer.
