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.
