Based on your past experience of your snubber damage, what are the common causes?

There are two major causes for snubber failure. The first one would be due to overloading. Snubbers may not function properly if fluid levels are low. If designed for the proper load and maintained, the snubber should not fail. Second major cause of snubber failure would be an incorrect installation and/or miscalculation of the total amount of movement required.
