What is the cause for the failure? Why does it occur with specific vehicles? The answers might surprise you.
Let’s take a closer look at adjustable shocks and struts, what they do, and how one should go about adjusting them.
It’s important to remember not to miss a worn joint. If a ball joint fails, the driver loses control of the vehicle.
If one of these sensors is replaced, it must be calibrated after it is installed.
The noise may be originating from the front lower control arm front bushing. Here’s how to correct it.
One mistake to avoid when replacing struts is reusing the bearing plates or upper mounts.
When performing a calibration, you are adjusting the connection between the sensor, vehicle and surroundings.
Air ride and active shocks and struts will eventually fail – succumbing to either damage to or dry rot of the air spring.
As vehicles age, eliminating noise is Job 1. But ‘noise’ may mean different things to you and your customers.
The secret to this job is building the total package that optimizes the chassis, springs and ride control components.
