Shock Absober testing place

Recommended Posts

Can someone recommend me a good shock absober testing place? One giving a report whether to replace.

Also If they need replacement I'm hoping to buy from T**S,  any other place you guys recommend?

Car - Allion 260

Take it to the To**ta La**a. They would do a test drive and tell. From my previous experience it's better to avoid the KYB (Sold by T**S), even it is made in Japan. After I replaced the all four shock absorbers of the 121, the car became extremely bumpy. I would never put KYB in any car again.

Thanks for the replies, replaced shocks. Let me know if someone want to know the place.

Please do share the Details and did you do a test  first and get the results before replacing?

Yeah, had a visual inspection, bump test, and finally had a test run, most of them are negative. then lift the car and removed the shocks, boy they look nasty. After the replacement, got a really smooth drive and improved on control (mostly cornering as well.) Back shock pair was ok, so didn't replace them.

Not sure, its ok to publish the place here, send me a DM so I can guide you to them.

By the way I replaced KYB shocks, there are 3 types of them, KYB Malaysian, KYB Klassic, KYB Japanase. I purchased the Japanese one around 26k for both. And it was around 32k for all other parts, boots etc.  Malysian one was around 4 thousand less.

Thanks for the Details .RS 32,000 for a  pair of shocks seems  reasonable.

Would it be ok to replace only a single pair?  if one pair is in good condition ?

@aruntantan How many kms have you done when you got the bad shock absorber signs?

Are the new shocks KYB Excel-G?

135,000 km on ODO. Was using the factory fitted one.

It was the KYB Japanese one, not sure its Excel-G, will confirm, once I get back home, have the boxes with me.

Planning to change the rear ones also, since they are also the factory fitted shocks.
