Re: Front Shock's

to test the shock, push down on the corner it should then rise and then fall a little then stop if it kepps bouncing then it needs changing, also check for leaking fluid

Re: Front Shock's

leaing fluid is a sure sign. also if the strut feels tacky its often due to fluid leak and then dusty gettting mixed with it.

on my rear shocks one is smooth with no resistence when you run your hand over it the other is tacky. a sign that the rear is starting to leak fluid.

so new suspension all round... hehe
