Abstract The article presents the legal requirements for shock absorbers in suspension, for a vehicle in which they are mounted to be allowed on Polish roads. A short description of the working methodology of the device used to determine the effectiveness of a shock absorber’s damping (sometimes referred to as relative wheel adhesion) is given on the basis of the Eusama method. The method of carrying out the tests on a sample of five passenger cars are described, along with the tests carried out at different temperatures for shock absorbers installed in a suspension system. The results of the diagnostic tests of the shock absorbers carried out on a diagnostic stand, in accordance with the Eusama method, are presented. The results confirm that the ambient conditions – the temperature of the chassis components (including the shock absorbers) – only slightly influence the values of their damping efficiency.
