Checking Shock Absorber Condition

Checking Shock Absorber Condition Points : Checking Shock Absorber Condition A shock absorber bounce test and visual inspection will normally locate shock absorber problems. To perform a shock absorber bounce test, push then release the body and count the number of times the car moves up and down.

A good shock absorber should stop body movement in two or three rebounds. A lead shock absorber will let the body bounce over three limes.

Also inspect the shock absorbers for signs of leakage and damage. If a shock is leaking, replace it with a new one. Check the rubber bushing on each end of shock absorber. They should not be smashed or split. Make sure that the shock absorber fasteners are tight.
