Welcome back to the Sabo Academy, In today’s episode we will observe some of the shock absorber defects, due to four main macro causes. Incorrect application, driving style, vehicle maintenance and road conditions.
All these causes have an influence on the behavior of some important elements of the shock absorber.

In this episode we will observe together what happens to the fastening elements.
The damage seen on this bushing has been caused by over-use of the shock absorber, so the normal wear and tear that a bushing suffers has been exacerbated by the truck’s mileage.
The example I show you now is mainly linked to a wrong choice of the shock absorber according to the application. The shock absorber you see in detail shows the upper eye completely torn, including welding. The shock absorber has been overextended, the total stroke of the shock absorber was not sufficient to cover the opening stroke of the suspension.
