4. Compress the damper assembly by hand, and check for smooth operation through a full stroke, both

compression and extension. The damper should extend in a smooth, continuous motion when the
compression is released. If it does not (no compression or no extension), the gas is leaking, and the
damper should be replaced.

5. Check for oil leaks, abnormal noises, or binding during these tests.

INSTALLATION

1. Place a floor jack at the connecting point of lower arm B and the stabilizer link.
