Is there a way to scientifically check my shocks assemblies? I know for the strut, you can check for leaking fluid. I know I have seen videos on Youtube, were you apply a force with your end to the corner of the car, and try and bounce it multiple times, if it osculates back and forth after you remove the force, there bad.
This isn’t to clear though to me. Is there a better method? I can try and do this method and form an opinion on if they should be replaced or not. But what I’m saying, is like for example, I don’t know how much force to apply, or how much isolation up and down is acceptable after I am no longer pressing up and down on the corner of the car.
Is there a more concrete method, where someone who doesn’t know the difference between good and back shocks, can perform some sort of test and can concretely say they are bad, and not just form an opinion or judgement, when they may not know the difference between good and bad?
