The help at malfunctions


There are several faultless signs of decrease in operability of shock-absorbers:

  • Steering beating as wheels have no continuous contact with the earth
  • The body continues to be shaken after moving of the uneven site.
  • "Amorphous" behavior of the car on turns as wheels, internal in relation to turn, nestle on the earth insufficiently, and external insufficiently strongly unload.
  • The jumping-up wheels; it can observe going nearby or the attendant behind.
  • Repeatedly interrupted trace of full braking because of the jumping wheels at full braking (is suppressed with adjustment of ABS in the car with system of anti-blocking of wheels).
  • Uneven wear of tires and their increased wear.
  • Considerable traces of oil on outer side of the shock-absorber. Insignificant leaks are normal.
