What is necessary to know about Sachs shock absorbers

  1. Sachs shock absorbers are produced by ZF Friedrichshafen AG, Germany. The brand’s history started in 1894, when the first patent for a bicycle wheel hub, created by Ernst Sachs, was recorded.
  2. The components belong to the premium price segment.
  3. Today the concern comprises more than 200 production sites in 40 countries. The company’s products are sold, apart from Europe, in North and South America, as well as in other territories. More than 10 million cars equipped with the parts of this trademark as standard are produced annually.
  4. The manufacturer offers products for:
    • City cars, including commercial vehicles.
    • Sports vehicles. Racers behind the wheels of cars equipped with this manufacturer’s spare parts won numerous competitions.
  5. Catalogues include items that differ in the type of the working medium:
    • Hydraulic shock absorbers. They are represented with Super Touring line. They are created for city cars and are notable for long service life.
    • Hydropneumatic shock absorbers. You can buy Sachs shock absorbers of two series: Super Touring and Advantage. The former are often chosen by drivers who prefer aggressive driving style and high speeds. The latter can adapt to changing road conditions automatically, due to availability of self-adjustment function.
  6. With respect to the design, the components can be:
    • Monotube. They are inexpensive and exclude oil foaming. Thanks to their stiffness, they effectively withstand excessive loads. They are optimum for off-road use of a car.
    • Twin-tube. They are installed on vehicles operated in urban conditions.
  7. The manufacturer also offers lightweight products made of aluminium. They have thickened walls only in those zones which undergo excessive loads.
  8. Thanks to modern production technologies and high quality of materials used, the car parts serve long. The manufacturer coats the inner walls of the parts with teflon, which increases their wear-resistance. Moreover, valves of Sachs shock absorbers are equipped with adjustment system responding to even the slightest movement of the piston.

Which shock absorbers to choose: oil or gas?

Choosing these parts, you should always consider the vehicle’s operating conditions and recommendations of its manufacturer. Oil shock absorbers are cheap. They ensure comfort when driving at low speed but are prone to overheating under high loads.

Gas components are stiffer. They help to improve the handling of the car and prevent the body from rocking. Their gas chamber is filled with nitrogen, which prevents the oil from foaming. Such parts perfectly absorb vibrations that occur when driving at high speed. At the same time, they ensure a smooth ride.

Gas shock absorbers are perfect for high-performance sports cars. They withstand maximum loads and are well cooled. These components increase suspension stiffness, which positively affects car manoeuvrability and handling. However, they don’t ensure enough comfort.

How to check shock absorbers

Visually inspect the parts to determine their condition. Oil leaks, dents on the housing, corrosion and deformation of the piston rod indicate the defective components. If there are no obvious signs of faulty shock absorbers, their malfunction can only be detected on a specially designed test bench at a garage.

Check the parts if you noticed:

  • increased braking path;
  • significant car body sway at sharp braking or driving on bumpy roads;
  • slow steering response;
  • accelerated tyre wear;
  • knocking in the suspension when driving on poor-quality roads.
How to install shock absorbers yourself

For replacement, you will need the following items:

  • a lifting device;
  • a set of hand tools: spanners, drive sockets, a hammer, screwdrivers, and pliers;
  • a WD-40 spray to make it easier to unscrew the stuck fasteners.

The components replacement procedure is rather complicated and time-consuming. You can find a detailed algorithm in your car owner’s manual. Remember that these parts should be replaced in pairs on one axle. Pump them before installing.

To access the upper mount and fasteners, you often need to remove the engine compartment seal or the luggage compartment trim panel. While the wheels and brake discs hinder the access to the lower mount and fasteners. For replacement of the shock absorbers, you will also have to remove the suspension arm ball joint, tie rod and disconnect the stabiliser link. The demounted unit should be carefully supported in order to avoid injuries. Always use special compressor tools when working with springs.
