How do you know?
How do you know when ur shocks are blown or need to be replaced...
i saw somewhere it can get really bouncy when ur shocks are worn out... is this how you can tell? confused

if i have a 1.25" lowering springs, what's the best shocks that go with it...
i don't care much for stiffness and performance,

i want shocks that offer me the best ride/comfort...?
what do you guys recommend? confused

thanks in advance thumbsup

Check it out, have someone push down on the front or back end of your ride, whichever you think is shot and listen closely to it, if it sounds like it's "crunchy" or like making a "voosh" kinda sound if you have gas shocks, then you might want to invest into a new pair. But more importantly if you feel a drastic difference in ride quality. (ex. if it feels like your suspension is not absorbing as much as it should, and you would feel it significantly) Look into replacing them. Or you could ride around with a lumpy ride! Whichever you prefer! spineyes


Knowing the path and choosing the path are two different things.
