I have found that the snubber and the hinges are what become damaged with a slight impact.

If an Impact is from Below.The Snubber & lower Hinge arm should take the Impact & partially the Upper Hinge & Guide Arm.
Is this a common Incident occurances.

It is the typical type of damage on the line. Typical would be a better word than common.
