1.5.10. Shock-absorber check

GENERAL INFORMATION

Check the shock-absorber on any signs of liquid leaks. If leak is found, therefore, the shock-absorber is damaged and demands replacement.


Prevention

Shock-absorbers are necessary for changing in pairs on one axis.


Efficiency of the shock-absorber also is checked by pressing a corner of a body and a sharp otpuskaniye. The body should come back to a starting position after its otpuskaniye. If the body rises above a starting position and that continues to be shaken, possibly, the shock-absorber located from this party, failed and is subject to replacement. Also check shock-absorber fastening on wear.
