Suspension Services – Terms & Conditions
Gamux Suspension Principles
To keep the performance of your suspension at the highest possible level, regular maintenance is recommended.
With every single piston rod movement, the smooth surfaces in the chassis pick up microscopic particles of abrasion. These particles are drawn into the oil and, over time, foul the internal passages and valves. The higher the number of hours of use, the higher the degree of contamination in the oil, which will gradually deteriorate the performance of the landing gear.
