Hi all,

Im about to put up for sale the shocks and springs from my T5. While i was giving them a quick scrub i noticed i can compress the rear shocks (by shock i mean the strut, not the spring) relatively easy by hand.....is this right? Seemed fine while they were on the van, i only replaced them for coilovers.

Thanks for any help.

The damper only controls the speed that it compresses and rebounds, I'm not surprised you can move it by hand but I would have thought it would be quite slow and you should feel resistance to the speed you push it at.

they have about 70k on them, they are easier to compress than i expected.
Already put them on ebay now, best put up that the dampers are a bit suspectI:
