What are typical errors you see when engineers specify snubbers?

They try to use snubbers to stop vibration, they do not allow for enough stroke, the initial set position of our moving piston is incorrectly specified, and they intend to use them as a load carrying member when we must remember they are tended only as passive elements until activated.
