The correct part number for the 3 strut nuts is 948645.

https://www.tascaparts.com/oem-parts...IFJlc3VsdHM%3D

If that's not available it appears to update to 985868.

what causes all of the different prices besides the blue box?

fcp has a genuine: $4 each
https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/volvo-lock-nut-985868

fcp has an aftermarket one that's copper-looking and $.59:

vp has some for $.44:

On 240s, is there a site to see all of the places where these lock nuts are used?

I might just order a big ol' bag of the copper ones

You can enter the part number on GCP's site and it will display all the catalogs that the part number is in. Click on a catalog and it will show all the pages in that catalog that that part number appears on.

The copper coated nuts are usually used for exhaust.

I'd just pick up some M8 flange head nuts from your favorite hardware store for that application.

Something like this:


Or you can order the "top lock" type similar to the OEM nuts:
