Shock absorber boots and bump stops are important components of the vehicle suspension. The former are intended for protecting the rods of the shock absorbers from dirt and aggressive chemicals. The latter softly limit the travel of the rod when the device is fully compressed, and perform a damping function, protecting other elements of the chassis. The components are replaced as they wear, and every time when installing new shock absorbers according to the prescribed schedule ― approximately every 100,000 to 150,000 km of mileage.

What you should know about replacing shock absorber boots and bump stops

  • Faulty boots are easy to notice visually. In case of cracks and tears, the components should be replaced. Failure of bump stops may be indicated by hard bumps on the bottom of the vehicle and by the characteristic metallic sound when driving through uneven surfaces, especially when the vehicle is fully loaded.
  • The components should be replaced at a service station. The work may require special equipment, for example, spring compressor tools. Dismantling the struts without them may cause injury. In addition, upon completion of the work the wheels should be aligned, which is performed on a special bench.
  • The components are usually installed together with new shock absorbers, which is accompanied by installation of new strut mount bearings and bushes. Therefore before you place an order for dust boots and bump stops, decide on what scope of work you are going to do because buying spare parts as a kit is always cheaper than individually.
  • The components should always be replaced on both sides of an axle, using a replacement kit, because wear of one of them usually indicates imminent failure of the other.
  • To prevent premature failure of the components, it is important to monitor the state of other suspension parts, especially springs. If they are no longer able to perform their functions, the entire task of absorbing vibrations falls on the bump stops, and they will quickly fail. A similar situation exists with the shock absorber bushes: their regular replacement can extend the service life of other components. Besides, you should always buy the components, considering the vehicle operating conditions. For example, items made of silicon retain elasticity even in the strong cold. Polyurethane components are more rigid, and therefore are suitable for sports driving.
