Default Bouncy ride?????? after replacing struts

Hi,
I have a 1999 s80, I replaced my struts in the front of the car. The car stills feels so bouncy. I can feel every little crack in the road, let's not even mention big bumps in the road. I believe it must be some kind of suspension problem since I replaced the struts and still feel this nuisance. Thanks.

- Do you think it is the control arm?

Brand of struts?
Are all the bushings in the rest of the suspension good?

the struts are volvo oem. i bought them off of a wrecked s80 volvo. But my mechanic said they were pretty much new, had not been used much. The bushings have not been changed. What about the wheel control arm????
