are my shocks on the way out?

Postby patk » Sun Jan 18, 2009 3:42 pm

lately theres been a knocking sound from the front suspension both sides when driving over uneven ground.
put it up on the jig.
ball joints and bushings fine.
she doesnt bounce when pushing down on suspension, seems very firm.
jacked up 1 side leaving an inch off the ground.
put a bar under wheel and lifted it up and the knocking sound came. :?:
