What are the general conditions of shock absorbers?

- Mar 16, 2019-

The shock absorber is undoubtedly an important part of the car. When the vehicle encounters a pothole section during driving, it is necessary to rely on the cushioning and damping of the shock absorber to ensure the stability and safety of the vehicle body. If the buffer link is damaged, it will feel the driving experience. Body safety has a big impact. Common types of shock absorbers are hydraulic shock absorbers, spring shock absorbers, rubber shock absorbers, and air cushion shock absorbers. Most of the shock absorbers on automobiles are hydraulic shock absorbers.


1. On a flat road, you can hear the “beep” sound on the front of the vehicle, and the sound will increase when you turn sharply. When parking the vehicle, press firmly on the front of the vehicle to make it rebound up and down. The abnormal noise appears, and the greater the force, the louder the sound.

Diagnosis 1: The vehicle usually travels on a bad road and is improperly maintained, causing the shock absorber to leak oil and be damaged.

Solution: This condition depends on the severity of the damage to be repaired or replaced.


2, oil leakage, oil seeps out from the oil seal on the upper part of the shock absorber body, and once the shock absorber moves, the oil drops more and more powerful.

Diagnosis 2: The sealing performance is lost due to damage to the oil seal caused by damage or attachment of foreign matter to the piston rod.

Solution: In this case we recommend replacing the new part or the new damper.


3. When the car is started or braked, the body is bumped up and down, and the rider feels unstable. .

Diagnosis 3: The damper is old and aging.

Solution: We recommend replacing the damper to make the car feel up and down, and the small vibration is reduced, making the ride more stable and comfortable.


The shock absorbers are usually checked every 100,000 km. There may be slight differences in the maintenance intervals between different models. When you need to change the maintenance of your car, please use the “self-maintenance” function.


Note: When you need to replace the damper, change it twice. If there is a problem with the front or rear damper, you need to reduce it before or after the damper is replaced with FAW, because when you change one, the car balances. Uneven force will cause the shock absorber to be different, and the shock absorber problem will occur!
