shocks

just got some cheap shocks on to replace leaked shcoks and not it looks like its too short or is something wrong?

Whenever I go over a hump or deep uneven areas, it compresses fine but when it extends, I hear clunking sounds.

any idea? The dumb dealer tells me it fits but now I seem to have this clunking sound.

Re: shocks

I had this after i chaged my rear shocks, but it turned out to be the back door clanking, because the suspension was a bit more bouncy. You could try jacking up the chassis so that the spring and axle are fully extended, then undo the end of the shock and compare it's travel. Is your vehicle raised? if so then stock shocks would probably not be any use of course.

Re: shocks

I have raised it a inch or so but that was when I was using the Gabriel Gas Ryder Shocks and they were fine. I understand that stock shocks have additional travel to cope with this slight lift but this time, I used another brand of shocks and this problem came.

I'll check my rear door. hopefully it's the cause...

Any idea how much a pair of USED RS9000 adjustable shocks with about 6000 miles on it are worth?

thanks.
