Rear Shock Absorber

Rear Shock Absorber

Rear shock absorbers do exactly what their name indicates, dampening the shock your suspension system gets when hitting a bump or conquering rough terrain.

A failing rear shock absorber can cause a variety of problems, including the following:

  • Oil leaks from the shock absorber housing
  • Bouncing after hitting a bump
  • Abnormal noises (usually knocking)
  • Damaged shock absorber bushings
  • Uneven or excessive tire wear

Rear shock absorber replacement

  • Both left and right shock absorbers must be replaced at the same time.
  • If your rear shock absorbers come with an air bladder, it can be used to adjust the height of the absorber. Depending on a shock absorber, it can be adjusted either manually or automatically.
