It is important to check the condition of the shock absorbers every 20,000 kilometers. The easiest way is visual inspection. Rust or oil traces on the shock absorbers is the first sign that you should expect the item repair or replacement. Be sure to also inspect tires (a bad sign is uneven wear spots). The most popular method of diagnosis is rocking the vehicle front or rear. If you count more than one stroke swing after removing the load, it says that the shock absorbers are faulty. One of the best options is to call on the diagnostic stands, where professionals will make measurements and announce the verdict.

Repair of shock absorber

If you have any problems with the shock absorbers, qualified employees at specialized services can help:

  • replace gaskets, seals, corrosive or bent rods;
  • eliminate leaks;
  • fill shock absorbers with nitrogen;
  • replace fluid in the part;
  • check the shock absorbers on the two-speed post;
  • restore the rods by means of spatter or polymer.

Replacing the shock absorber

In normal operating conditions, the shock absorbers should be replaced every 3-4 years, in the conditions of aggressive environmental impact every 40-50 thousand kilometers. Both shock absorber should be replaced on the same axis to avoid skidding while driving. To carry out replacement you need:

  • remove the wheel;
  • dismantle the brake hosess without disconnecting them from the calipers in order to not pump the brake system;
  • dismantle the upper strut mountings;
  • unscrew all the shock absorber mountings at the bottom;
  • compress the spring with a puller (it is important that it is not twisted);
  • replace the defective shock absorber with the new one;
  • mount each of the elements in reverse order (also be sure to make damage assessment of spring for cracks).
