This is a pretty simple question. I always use the old bounce test to determine if a shock is any good on a car. But my 78 Landcruiser suspension does not allow me to bounce it. Aside from removing a shock how can I test them on my Landcruiser?
I drive my Landcruiser daily, the suspension is in good condition, there is not a problem with anything stuck. I installed the shocks probably 20 years ago. They were high end Rancho shocks and everything drives great. I was just thinking about how to test them.
I have the stock springs . I replaced the pins and bushings several years ago. My shocks are not leaking. I know from experience when you remove shocks many times the bushings fall apart guess that will be the excuse to buy new shocks. I commonly haul 20 bags of wood pellets (800 pounds) and the rear springs compress about 1 inch.
