Shock Absorber Help

Hi All

I have a question if someone could offer some advice.

I have Koni Gas adjustable shocks all round, On removing for a clean up i noticed...

On front 1 shock compression and returns the other does not return.

But both shocks have good resistance pushed in and and pulled out. and also the adjustment works ok aswell giving softer and harder resistance.


So whats the score is the shock that does not return Knackered or is it something that can happen.

When fitted you would never know that it does not return it works as it should with no bounce.

I wouldnt bother asking but they were a pricey item and getting a single or a full set now days will be hard


any info would be great

Thanks

I suspect it has lost its gas. I think the purpose of the gas is to stop the oil in the shock aerating when they are used hard. Under normal driving it might not be noticed but harder driving and that side will soften up.

You should be able to get it refurbished without too much difficulty. Though the price in doing so, this I do not know.
