    hello, I just notice that both suspension air bags /in red on the picture/ on front drive axle are under angle. Almost 45 degree angle backwards. Something is pushing them backwards, what can be the problem? Do you have any idea where to look for the problem?

    The only thing I notice that is different are the top leaf spring /in yellow on the picture/ are sticking out in the front more than needs to be. I compare them with rear axle where everything is perfect.

    I am not sure if the plates and Ubolts are positioned correct. I have not touched anything there but seems to be replaced leaf spring before.

    Honestly without pictures it will be a shot in the dark as far as giving you a legit diagnosis. Take it to a reputable shop and have a professional give you an accurate assessment.

    Good luck

    What @Socal Xpress said is correct.
    We need actual pictures off said truck.

    We need extra pictures from the front off the axle.
    Where the sprong connects to the chassis.
    And pictures off the spring itself.
     
    CellNet Thanks this.

    Replace your leaf springs both sides that should correct your problems.

    There are two leaf springs on each side - one short and one Z shaped? Which one you think is bad? What makes you think the leaf springs are the problem?

    I have checked with volvo dealer and they have them in stock on reasonable price, but I would like to be sure that is the real problem no only trowing money on keep on replacing parts!
