Shock absorbers and springs annually review 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, KYB suspension specialist is recommended. In the summer, cars often especially long distances travel vacations and frequent trips. In addition, they were also often heavily laden. The shock absorbers and springs have been subjected to so much higher loads. Winter tire change a simultaneous shock absorbers and springs-check is that the wheels are mounted off then anyway, advises KYB suspension manufacturer. 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 the winter, the shock absorbers and springs through rain, snow, Frost and road salt are extremely strong claims. “Best higher gas pressure shock absorbers and springs fitted in original equipment quality, providing a new driving experience, greater safety and greater comfort – so even the biggest benefit”, chassis expert recommends Hans-Jurgen link by KYB. “www.kyb-europe.com/ kyb-germany editorial: Dr. Falk Kohler photos shock and feather regularly check and replacing kyb photo 92.jpg/IMG photo caption: shock absorbers and springs regularly check and replaced, 22 percent of all cars, the shock absorbers are defective photo: KYB photo download 300 dpi-jpg file: presse/kyb/fotos/stossdaempfer-und-federn-regelmaessig-ueberpruefen-und-auswechseln-kyb-foto-92.jpg video downloads: kyb-germany/videos.html sources: 22 percent of all cars driving with worn shock absorbers”: KYB market research 13.4 percent of the cars have defects in the chassis in accordance with TuV report 2012 “: TUEV-sued.de/auto-fahrzeuge/tools-services/TUEV-report-2012/die-haeufigsten-maengel KYB (formerly Kayaba) the Japanese company KYB (Kayaba earlier) with European headquarters in Krefeld, Germany is the largest shock absorber manufacturers in the world for cars with $3.8 billion revenue per year, a production of approximately 55 million units and a market share of 25 percent in the original equipment business, and by 20 percent in the spare parts business.
