I believe it is air. Not sure on how much
How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?
We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :
Normal charges are 130-145 psi. At 128 psi, you probably won`t notice a big difference, but if you should probably have more pressure put in if you can come across another shop.
The way we like to approach it is sort of a shortcut; take your weight in kg and add 40 to that number. That`s how much you should pump your rear shock in psi. Then look at your sag once more when you`re on the bike. For the rear shock you want to have around 20% sag.
DESIGNED TO MAINTAIN VEHICLE RIDE HEIGHT
Monroe Max-Air air shocks can be inflated or deflated as needed, up to 150 PSI, to maintain ride height when under load with additional weight up to 1,200 lbs.
Rear shock replacement costs can vary depending on the make and model of your vehicle and the type of shocks you choose to install. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $200 to $900 for a pair of rear shocks, including installation fees.
is it ok to fill a shock with regular air instead of nitrogen ? will it cause any damage to the shock or affect how it performs vs nitrogen? air has moisture, that could corrode the inside of the shock. also air expands with heat, which changes the shocks handling characteristics, nitrogen does not.
Mostly, 30-35 PSI is the range for car tyre pressure.
Most passenger cars will recommend 32 psi to 35 psi in the tires when they`re cold. The reason you check tire pressure when they`re cold is that as tires roll along the road, friction between them and the road generates heat, increasing both the temperature and the air pressure.
In general, lawns should be fertilized about 4 times a year with 1 lb. of nitrogen at each application. Both cool-season and warm-season grasses require 4 – 6 lbs. of actual nitrogen per year.
Two pounds of nitrogen per 1,000 square feet* is recommended, and your fertilizer contains 20% nitrogen. You should apply 10 pounds of the fertilizer per 1,000 square feet (five pounds from the table multiplied by the two pound recommendation).
You should always keep 5 lbs. of air pressure in your air bags to prevent any damage. 5 lbs. will not affect your ride but will ensure your air bags last.
As a rough guideline, you should aim for a sag of about 20 % for the fork and 30 % for the rear shock. If yours is less than that, you can simply let some air out.
How much pressure do I need? Yes, you should always maintain the recommended minimum air pressure of 5 PSI, even if your vehicle isn`t loaded. This keeps the air springs “in shape” and able to perform without rubbing or wearing.
Generally, shocks and struts wear out every 50,000-100,000 miles. If you`re a more aggressive driver and/or frequently drive on rough roads, they will wear out faster.
On average, if your car has been “babied,” you can expect your shocks/struts to last about 10 years. If you have really used your car like a workhorse, 5 years is probably all you can expect. This means that for the average driver, 7 or 8 years is the maximum life expectancy of most shocks and struts.
Can You Mix Nitrogen With Air? The short answer is YES! There is no ill effect to topping nitrogen-filled tires with air or vice versa. It won`t cause any harm to your tires, but it is somewhat less effective than just sticking to nitrogen.
If you have nitrogen filled tires and need to refill them but there is none available, it`s perfectly safe to fill them with regular compressed air.
Tyre pressures are normally higher in the front than the rear, to compensate for the extra weight of the engine and transmission, especially on front-wheel-drive cars.
When the tyre pressure is too high, the tyre is less flexible, resulting in a smaller contact patch with the road. This can lead to increased rolling resistance, which means the engine has to work harder to move the vehicle, leading to higher fuel consumption.
A car tyre has a volume of 10 litres when inflated.
A Honda Civic with the stock size 185/65R-14; recommended air pressure is 193 kpa.
All you have to do is push your thumb down on the tire to feel the pressure. Underinflated tires will be soft. You will find your tires to be extremely stiff if they are overinflated. The tire pressure is proper if your tire is not too soft or too stiff as mentioned above.
For instance, if 35 psi is recommended, and the maximum safe pressure listed on your sidewall is 44 psi, you can safely put 38 or 40 psi in your tires. You can even go to 44 psi. You`ll experience a harder ride, but you won`t create a blowout danger. You may even experience sharper cornering and increased fuel economy.
Excess nitrogen can cause plants to grow excessively and develop overly succulent leaves and shoots, which promotes outbreaks of certain sucking insects and mites. Excessive nitrogen causes fruiting plants to produce relatively more foliage, reducing their fruit production and delaying fruit maturity.
Excess nitrogen in the air can impair our ability to breathe, limit visibility and alter plant growth. Nutrient pollution is one of America`s most widespread, costly and challenging environmental problems, and is caused by excess nitrogen and phosphorus in the air and water.
