Rear shocks - 86 Aspy

Post by alanc1100 » Wed Apr 29, 2015 1:56 am

Hello all,
I rebuilt my shocks around September last fall. I noticed that at the time, my right shock damper was real easy to push/pull. Since I did that one first, I figured I'd wait to see what the left shock would give me. It worked like it supposed to. But, being out of $$, I put it back together, poured in the req amount of ATF in both and mounted them. In the 200 or so miles I've put on it, it didn't bottom out, it held pressure and as far as I can tell it is working. So, the big question is, should I look to putting Progressive dampers and springs in them? All advice would be appreciated.

Thanks, Alan
