Driver errors, which reduce the service life of the shock absorbers
• driver error, which reduces the life of the shock absorbers
It's summer holiday season, summer residences and many car trips. As a rule, mileage cars at this time is growing much stronger than in the cold season, and thus significantly accelerates the wear rate of the most important parts and spares. The situation is getting worse by the fact that many of even the most experienced drivers make a series of inexcusable errors while driving.

Nothing has such a negative impact on the shock absorbers as a strong blow from which the item is reduced faster and stronger than it provides for the design. It is understood that when the metal parts begin to fight each other, then we are talking not about the wear acceleration, and the direct damage.
What to do: drive carefully, try to go around the pit.
2. Wear anther

Bellow is one of the most important elements of car suspension. As you can guess from the name, it is necessary to protect the absorber from dust, sand and dirt. Any damage to the anther, even the most minor cuts or cracks are fraught with the fact that the suspension will begin to flow. In addition, during the warm season, a torn duster violates the right heat sink, which is fraught with the overheating of the entire system.
What to do: timely change duster.
3. Older consumables
It is necessary to change the time. / Photo: 24rauto.ru. the car's suspension - a rare example of a mechanism, which somehow interact with each other all the components and parts. If time does not update them all the suffering in the overall picture will be even those parts that have been replaced by just yesterday. Be sure to monitor the condition of the rubber suspension elements. Also in the high-risk group includes cushions, levers, joints, silent blocks and some other things.
What to do in a timely manner to replace consumables and to periodically check the condition of the suspension.

Almost every driver knows that the low temperature is extremely negative impact on the condition and operation of the hydraulic system. However, many lose sight of what a critical impact on the wear rate is also provided, and a high temperature, namely - the summer heat. Worst of all, the situation is in those cases where the car is also strongly overloaded.
What to do: in hot weather should be "dosed" car load.

Speaking of excessive load. It should be noted that the car overweight in general is a very negative thing. The more people and luggage, the greater the load on the shock absorbers. When poor road surface, the system accelerates the wear literally at times.
What to do: try not to take too much on board.
