Loaded struts are struts that come pre-assembled and ready to install. This video is sponsored by The Network Academy.
The most important thing to remember is that as the suspension compresses, the alignment angles change.
One spring rate might be great for controlling body lean, but it could be too hard to provide a comfortable ride.
Use this procedure to reduce the chances of the inner rubber sleeve of the strut front suspension support from tearing.
The first step in selling ride control is the inspection process. A visual inspection of the shocks and struts can tell you a lot about the state of the ride control units. If possible, visual inspections should be performed before the test drive. This is a chance to make sure the vehicle is road worthy before you put your own life at risk.
Available now, the B8 8112 (ZoneControl CR) shocks will be joined by the B8 8100 (Bypass) shock in coming weeks.
The expansion includes growth in the twin-tube Excel-G and Strut-Plus lineups, as well as additions to KYB’s monotube lines of Gas-a-Just and MonoMax.
SK-2805 is a twin-tube shock for the left and right rear sides and includes an actuator and three VOSS airline fittings to easily connect the shock to the air spring.
Air ride systems can offer great benefits for drivers. They can improve ride quality and add functionality like increased ride height for off-road excursions – all while keeping the rear level under loaded conditions.
Test drives on the surface can seem like one of the most unprofitable tasks a technician can perform. But, test drives can be one of the most profitable processes a shop can do to help sell more service.
Nivomat shocks can be found on a variety of vehicles. They are self-leveling shocks that use an internal pump on the piston to control the level of the vehicle. There are no external lines or connections. Five Signs a Nivomat is Bad Sagging: If you load the trunk of a vehicle with Nivomats, the rear
