Replacing Shock Absorbers

Hello, one of my rear shock absorbers has started to leak a little oil, as my MOT is due next week I know that it needs to be sorted so I had a look online bought some, the brand is Nordschleife, anyone used these guys before? They were relatively cheap and replacing them doesnít look as difficult as I thought has anyone else tried? Thanks

Re: Replacing Shock Absorbers

Gas filled shocks anyway, They can weep a little oil, if the shock is still good and working fine then I would just clean it off before submitting it for MOT.

Re: Replacing Shock Absorbers

Guys? When I replace shock absorbers, do I have to go to do geometry measurement/adjustment ?

No..

Get replacement parts of the correct fit


But because a damper has no effect on the arc of movement.. it should only change 'ride height' at worst.

When combined with non.standard springs..
