What are the symptoms of a shot damper?

Any recomendations on the best steering damper for this model?

How to easily remove it ( have tried undoing the nuts and giving it a wallop!)

Thanks in advance

The pin is tapered so a tie rod seperator may be needed. If it is shot, it may leak and the steering will kick alot more and may be harder to control under heavy braking. Any good quality damper will do but genuine will last alot longer if you want to spend mega bucks!!

To remove it using an FBH (a big hammer), you also need a solid backing point to counter the wallop. I have used a mallet on the other side to remove tie-rod ends. I find that a block of wood dampers the action too much, so something of steel construction is the go.

steering shakes on corrigated roads, more viabration/shake when you hit potholes.

Also anythin simliar to what you would get from a Shocky since thats what it is!

for the price replace it! Keep the old one for a spare.

BIG HAMMER to remove, although you shouldnt have to

any shock absorber has a life of 70000ks, in easy conditions less in a harsh terrain, you know your vehicle. A shocky doesnt have to be leaking to be shot. Col.
