Air ride and active shocks and struts will eventually fail – succumbing to either damage to or dry rot of the air spring.
Learning how to read the tire and communicate your findings is the key to ride control.
Don’t give up. Surveys have shown that 50% of ride control sales occur on the second visit.
Aligning this Mustang is not that much different from Ford’s other products, but there are additional steps to follow.
Shocks, struts and springs do not operate independently.
One mistake to avoid when replacing struts is reusing the bearing plates or upper mounts.
A visual inspection of the shocks and struts can tell you a lot about the ride control units.
The suspension needs just as much or more attention when compared to the engine.
Active dampening or suspension control systems can be found on luxury Asian and European vehicles.
Do you understand the technical differences between monotube and twin-tube shock designs?
Imagine a car without sway bars. The car would experience body roll around corners, but off road and in a straight line, the tires would maintain better contact with rougher roads at lower speed for better traction.
