Good replacement part
Good machining, perfect fit on a 1998 Volvo S70 T5 FWD

The job is not easy, and depending on the age of the car you are going to have problems getting the bolts out. Have spares on-hand or you're gonna get mad when you have to cut or torch one of the old ones out.

You may want to remove the whole spindle assembly and vice it so you don't have to do all the work in the restrictive wheel well

Hubs a great prices
After shopping around locally and finding out that no one had the parts but Volvo and they wanted your entire home. I went to my favorite car site and found these.

Not to mention the cost was great considering it was the while part. It wasn’t even a shadow of an eye. I had to get them. Cheap then most car bearings.

Great product
great price.
