New Shocks?


Recommended Posts

How do you recognize the noise of a damaged shock? I started to hear a cloc-cloc in the rear, I dont want to think its a shock, the car is only 56k miles!!!! :(

Other question, how do i get to the linkage of the shock to the body? its behind the rear sits?

Damaged shocks/dampers will usually leak (lots) from the piston - there will be dampness around the upper part of the strut just beneath/around the bottom of the coil spring.

If you push down on that quarter of the car body the vehicle will tend to oscillate more than just a single up....down to rest.

The upper mounting bolts for the rear macpherson struts are usually accessed via the boot.
