Shock absorbers

Recommended Posts

For quite a while I have been thinking that the shocks might need replacing. But which ones? Car has done 90k. Seems to be very bouncy on B roads.

How can I individually inspect each one? And which ones usually go?

First part should always be a visual inspection, look for any signs of dampness or wetness on the shock/shock shaft. You can bounce each corner and see how it responds, a worn shock may take longer to slow the oscillating movement down. Simple things that are easy to look for.
