Shock Absorber Testing
We follow our simple procedures to deliver accuracy and results when testing your shocks.
The specialists at every Shock Shop store use a computerized Shock Tester. It allows the user to determine the performance of you vehicles' individual
shock absorbers, helping identify when they are worn and need to be replaced.
Industry averages show that shock absorbers are only replaced in 8 out of every 100 cars inspected. Most workshop averages are much lower than this because shock absorbers are not tested.
Many workshops only look for leaking shocks, but all moving parts wear and shock absorbers are no different. The Shock Shop's shock absorber tester employs both the
“rebound method" and “damping ratio”, so you can leave out all the guesswork and offer an accurate diagnosis on your shock absorber performance.
