Bad shock absorbers – dangerous driving. The vehicle is due to their failure poorly manageable, the wheels have little traction with the road surface. This also leads to a malfunction of the brake system. The main task, which is carried out shock absorber in car, is to control and hold the wheel while driving. This avoids losing control of the vehicle.
Shock absorbers are also designed to damp vibrations that occur when driving on an uneven surface, off-road and when the speed changes. Springs do not always cope with the load. Consequently, the safety of the vehicle and passengers directly depends on the shock absorber. Therefore, it is necessary to pay special attention to the selection of these parts of the chassis of the car.
The structure and types of shock absorbers
Shock absorbers consist of a cylinder with a piston inside and a valve mechanism. The combination of such elements in this system allows you to damp the vibrations in a timely manner and prevent the car from swaying violently.
Varieties by the principle of action
The most common are hydraulic and gas shock absorbers:
Hydraulic shock absorbers put out the vibrations of the elastic elements of the suspension using oil that flows from one tank to another through a valve system. Gas shock absorbers they also use liquid, but it is preliminarily “squeezed” by a small volume of gas. Varieties in structure
Two-pipe . Single-tube with gas pressure. Two-pipe with gas pressure. Single-tube have advantages, because the liquid in this device does not overheat. They are also practical: the housing can be installed up and down.
Two-pipe ones consist of two cavities, one has a piston with valves, and the second is necessary to partially fill it with oil and air. If they are absent or too few in design, then the shock absorber stops working or is compressed without resistance. In the event of such malfunctions, it is necessary to contact a car service or service station that has

Checking the fault is quite simple:
If during driving the car does not shake and extraneous noise is not heard, then the shock absorbers function normally. If in motion there are problems with braking, smooth running, fitting into a turn, and also the car cannot gain a certain speed, then it is necessary to pay attention to the condition of the shock absorbers. Such problems can lead to an accident caused by an increase in wheel slip vibration. Most often, the main cause of the breakdown may be leakage of fluid through a damaged seal. This can happen in such cases:
Wear of the sealing material due to friction. Sudden change in temperature. Dirt and dust are trapped in the shock absorber. Gas or air are trapped in the shock absorber. To avoid breakdowns, it is necessary to seek the help of professionals in a timely manner, who will make a diagnosis and restore the parts if necessary. This can help

When selecting parts for a car repair, it pays to know the differences between original and aftermarket parts. Whenever possible, get estimates for both.
Choosing between original and aftermarket car parts — and even used parts of either type — is all about squaring your priorities with your budget.
You’ll have different options depending on the part and the shop. And the best choice will depend on whether you’re trying to keep repairs cheap, restore your car’s appearance after a wreck or soup up your ride.
Original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts match those that came with your car, and are of the same quality as its original parts. They’re also the most expensive.

The number of mounting points depends on the length, mass, use and installation of the power assembly. The mounting system can be mounted at 3, 4 and 5 points. Generally, three-point and four-point mounting systems are used in automobiles, because if the number of mounting points increases when the vibration is relatively large, when the body deformation, some mounting points will be dislocated, so that the engine or mounting bracket force is too large and cause damage to the three points, the advantages of the support is that no matter how bumpy and jumping the car, it can always ensure the support. The point is in a plane, which greatly improves the force condition of the body. The front and rear suspensions of the four-point mount are mainly used to prevent the torsion of the power assembly, and the torsional stiffness is larger than that of the three-point mount.
Three point mounting system
Left suspension: connect with gearbox, mainly power assembly limit and supporting function.
The right suspension: connected with the engine, it can isolate the engine, such as vibration, inertia force and vibration.
Rear suspension: It is connected with the gearbox, and has the functions of longitudinal limit, bearing torque, driving condition limit and so on.
Four point mounting system
It can overcome the large torsional reaction force, but the torsion stiffness is large, which is not conducive to the isolation of low frequency vibration.
Left and right suspension: close to the torsional inertia axis, support the powertrain up and down, and have the function of vibration decoupling.
Front and rear suspension: with the transmission, it has longitudinal limit, driving condition limit and torque endurance.

Rubber bushing is mainly used in the position of automobile front and rear suspension and other frequent vibration. It plays a vital role in the whole vehicle NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness), and it will be invalid and will affect the whole vehicle noise and driving stability. The failure mode of rubber bushing is not only its own quality control, but also its working environment is one of the key factors affecting its life. Thanks for the support of the Feilong Jiangli technical department.
Automobile suspension is a component that connects the frame (or body) with the axle (or direct and wheel). Its main functions are: D mitigates and inhibits vibration or shock caused by uneven pavement to ensure the car has good smoothness; 2 (2) rapidly attenuates the vibration of the body and axle (or wheel); 3 (3) transfer function in the wheel and frame (car) Various forces (vertical force, longitudinal force, transverse force) and moments (braking moment and reaction moment) between the body; 4) to ensure the necessary stability of the vehicle.
