    So why not get a set, so you can do this sort of work yourself? Then you might be able to comment properly

    Last pair of struts i had done cost me 60 a side in labour, I supplied parts. IMHO hardly worth skinning your knuckles for 120 bucks.

    U don't like being wrong do you, so much for a suspension guy when you don't know the purpose of a strut or shock.. What you say again I'm a joke and you call yourself a expert and don't even know that the strut or shock job is to keep your wheels in contact with the ground.

    Your Quote which says we all should keep clear of your business. ;) Why not mention your shop so we can keep clear..:D
    And you have no idea how shocks work....PFFT, keep the tyre on the ground...What a joke you are.

    Only joke is you not understanding the basics of physics.

    So what happens when a shock fails to rebound? Do some research on that and you'll understand what a joke you actually are making quotes like that

    Not about personal I don't know grumpy just replying to his stuff up after all he says his a expert, I suppose you cant tech old dogs new tricks they are set in their ways, well most people know a shock keeps your wheel in contact with the ground unfortunately this so called expert thinks it doesn't and has the check to say I'm a joke..

    Nope the springs take the weight, hence the reason you can stop the shock from moving with your hand, It will help the spring resettle , have a read, again I know but this is just to explain it.

    Goes to show you're a youtube expert and you tube experts know nothing...You've proven it time after time

    This video shows you don't know anything....It's showing bump and rebound, not just rebound...

    Best you read up on what I have written on how a shock works and then comment, because at the moment you are showing you know SFA
