old strut vs. new strut
I changed the struts on my 2000 Maxima because one of them had completely failed. This was the good one which still had oil in it; the bad one made horrible scratching noises and clanked around.





Replacing struts
Struts can sometimes be a little scary. That is unless you have the right equipment. They are really pretty simple for the most part. However be sure to use a spring compressor. Here is an example on a Honda. Other vehicles will be basically the same

Problems Caused by Worn Out Struts - Subaru Impreza RB5
Struts are one of the most important parts of a vehicle's suspension. They ensure a smooth ride over bumps and surface imperfections and isolate occupants of the car from the road. Struts also ensure the car handles well around corners and keeps the car stable under acceleration and braking. Poor Handling Worn out struts can cause poor handling. When struts become worn beyond their useful life, they will not control the weight of the car as well during cornering. The result is increased body roll (the tipping motion of the vehicle) during cornering and a less stable feeling from the suspension and steering. If the struts are worn enough, this can be potentially dangerous, as the vehicle will not be as stable and easy to control as necessary. Clunking and Banging Worn out struts may also cause the suspension to clunk and bang. If the struts are blown out from excessive use, they may rattle and clunk during driving. This will become more pronounced over bumpy sections of road. garageexeter.com - Jeff Moor's Garage Exeter





Difference between Shocks and Struts
Pat Goss of MotorWeek explains the differences between shocks and struts. He shows how to test for shocks and struts that are completely worn out and should have been replaced long ago. Once a car fails the bounce test, its braking and handling have already been compromised and there has been unnecessary wear on other suspension, steering and brake parts.

Astra G - amortyzator przedni Delphi 99` vs KYB 11`
Porównanie starego amortyzatora Delphi z roku 99` z nowym Kayaba 11`. Delphi - używając niewiele siły amortyzator można wcisnąć, cofa się ale nie jest to prawidłowa praca. Kayaba - trzeba użyć naprawdę dużo siły aby wcisnąć, wysuwa się także szybciej niż stary delphi. Po wymianie przodu i tyłu auto wreszcie zachowuje się stabilnie i droga hamowania się skróciła ponieważ koła trzymają się drogi.
