Heavy duty shock absorbers for vans
The delivery traffic continues to increase
Every day the number of registrations for vans increases. For example, Mercedes Sprinter, Iveco Daily, Fiat Ducato or VW Crafter, Citroen Jumper, Peugeot Boxer and also Renault Master. They are all represented here. It is impossible to imagine our streets without these ‘raging cabinets’. And the demands placed on these vehicles are increasing daily. More and more cargo has to be transported from A to B at ever shorter delivery times.
High speed, fully utilised loading space, lane changes in ever-increasing construction sites: the standard chassis is thus completely overstrained in 70% of all cases. If the vehicle then still has many kilometers on the speedometer and the already heavily stressed dampers lose additional power, it becomes dangerous. Do not let it come to that.
To detect a defective shock absorber is not always easy
Broken shock absorbers can be very dangerous. Take action in good time as soon as the first signs of wear and tear become apparent. The most common cause of a defect: The oil used for damping slowly disappears past the piston rod, leaving a greasy film on the housing. You can still recognize defective shock absorbers from this:
- Irregular tire wear
- The vehicle reacts sensitively to crosswind
- Steering wheel flutter
- The vehicle tilts when braking
- The front axle of the vehicle plunges heavily in tight curves
- The vehicle is restless after driving over hilltops, ruts, potholes, manhole covers and bumps
- Uncertain feeling when driving traffic circles
Have shock absorbers for transporters checked regularly
We recommend to have the dampers of your transporter checked regularly. Defective shock absorbers can have serious consequences for driving safety – such as a considerably longer braking distance. During this check, the surrounding components should also always be checked. Because if the shock absorbers of a van are defective, other chassis components also wear out more quickly. So prevent unnecessary downtimes and costs.
