I have change my parts on the van and I can still hear thumping sound when you drive in bumps im thinking it's has to do with rack and pinion


just a suggestion to think on I am not a mechanic but my car had blown shock absorbers.
how are the shock absorbers check these or get them checked are they leaking fluid out of them. If Shock absorbers are not functioning it will also affect the braking efficiency of your vehicle. Thats what the suspension repairer told me and what I noticed once they were replaced.

After 23 years of good service the drum has fallen off at one side. Is it worth fixing or buy a new one?


HAS SHOCK ABSORBERS WHEN THEY GO BAD ONE SIDE CAN LEAN ALSO CHECK FOR BAD OR LOOSE BALANCE WEIGHT. LOCATED NEAR THE MOTOR.

All front-load washing machines have shock absorbers that are used to dampen the tub movement in the spin cycle. The shock absorbers or struts are attached to the base frame and to the outer tub and you will need to remove the front panel or the rear panel to access them. When shock absorbers weaken or become damaged, the machine will often make a loud banging sound during the spin cycle and if the symptom is not corrected, can lead to damage of other components. Inspect the shocks for signs of broken attachments, leaked fluids or a weakened dampening action and replace both shocks if worn. Remove power from the appliance before attempting this repair.

Pulsar 150 DTSi rear shock absorber gas pressure is low. How to fill the gas into shock absorber and how much pressure of gas to be fill into it?........ and normal AIR can fill into shock absorber...


The new Pulsar 150 has RSA with Coil Springs and Suspension Fluid. If the Springs are fine, then get the shocks filled with equal amounts of Fluid at major Service Centers (Few workshops have it).
Else, if the Springs are weak, they can be adjusted by Local Shock Absorber Repairers (Dealers do not suggest it and do not have any mecanism to do it).
If neither of the above works, you have to finally change to a new Set of Rear Shock Absorbers...

Fluid leaking out of rear shock


it is most likely leaking through the seal, you will need to replace the shock absorber, it is best to replace the both of them so as they are both the same.....hope this helps.......cheers

How much oil do i put in the rear shok for a yz250


You can change it. Im looking for the correct amount to do it myself. I already pulled mine apart and bought a rebuild kit for it. Comes with a new nitrogen bladder, o rings for the seal, and a few other necessary items. Just remember to measure where the jam nuts holding your spring is so you can put it back in the correct location. As for the nitrogen i heard 150 psi. I'm fortunate to work at an offroad racing shop so i'm just gonna fill mine with nitrogen there, but i dont think you should get charged too much at a regular bike shop. Rockymountainatv.com has the rebuild kit. You will need the seals atleast. If i find anything else out i'll let you know. Hope this helps.

2004 Acura TL front end problem


You may not need the entire strut, just the part that serves as a shock absorber. The term strut refers to a complete assemby with coil spring and a central shock absorber. When their seals fail completely, whether gas or fluid filled,they are just a piston in a cylinder with nothing to damp their travel so they can slam at both ends.
American made 'shocks' were once only really effective for ~20k miles but both foreign and domestic have improved a great deal but one of yours may have left the factory less than perfect.
Shop the parts before you let the car go to anyone to see if they are scalping you or only marking their cost up a little.
