Check for bad wheel balance, struts, lower ball joints ( no upper joints) , outer tie rod ends, inner tie rod ends, stabilizer bar bushings, lower control arm bushings , and finally a wheel alignment ,you have some bad looseness in one or more of these front end parts. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.
Those sound like your Sway bar end links, and usually they come out tricky, need a way to hold the ball and socket while removing the nut.Sometimes there is a place for a wrench on back side of sway bar closer to link opposite the nut.
My dear if according to you, You've replaced tie rod ends, lower ball joints, sway bar links, struts and strut ends, and the warped brake rotors and the issue is still at hand; then you ought to consider replacing the hubs.
Lift the passenger side of vehicle. Remove tire/wheel assembly. Remove the axle nut. Remove the tie rod end nut. Smack the side of the housing the tie rod end goes into to pop the tie rod end loose and out. Remove the sway bar link. Remove the lower ball joint nut. Smack the housing the lower ball joint goes into to pop the ball joint loose. Pry the lower control arm down to pop the ball joint out. swivel the rotor and strut assembly to the side. Pop the axle out. Reassemble in the reverse order.
Most likely the sway bar links,if quiet unless you hit little bumps or cracks thats the most likely thing on a volvo. Followed by ball joints and tie rods. If it only happens when you are sitting still and move the steering wheel side to side that would be a tie rod.
The sway bar bushings are under the large clamps that hold the bar to the frame. The ends of the sway bar are connected to the struts by the sway bar links. When the links wear out, they clunk--not squeak. The bushings are under the retainer in the pic below.
If on the front end, you will have the spring, with the strut coming down in the center, then you will have a sway bar with a thin rod that connects to the arm, then you will have a small rod coming straight out with a boot and nut on the end at a 90deg angle, and that will be the tie rod and tie rod end. And in the center of the wheel will be your axle, I hope I described what you are looking for. Good luck
