The tread is literally wiped away and already it may be 25 percent less mileage of tyres. An expensive pleasure. Particularly insidious: Dampers and springs wear out gradually, that the driver hardly notice it. Their periodic inspection in the workshop is therefore very important. From 60 000 kilometres should be take shock absorbers and springs every year again and again under the microscope. In the summer, cars often especially long distances travel vacations and frequent trips. In addition, they were also often heavily laden.
The dampers and springs were exposed to so much higher loads. Winter tire change a simultaneous shock absorbers and springs-check is, because the wheels are mounted off then anyway. It was through a Visual inspection to determine conspicuous damage, or through a function test with the appropriate test equipment. If the shock absorbers and springs are not enough powerful, you should change them to avoid dangerous risks. Because even in winter the dampers and springs are claimed very strongly through rain, snow, Frost and road salt.
Higher gas pressure shock absorbers and springs is best in “First equipment quality up to build, providing a new driving experience, greater safety and greater comfort even the largest benefit”, expert Hans-Jurgen link KYB manufacturer recommends.
