Shock absorbers are in fact far better described as dampers.
They absorb next to nothing but restrict the rebound from a spring. They offer some, but not very much, resistance when being compressed and a lot of resistance when being extended! (Unless they are knackered that is)
Sound advice from Powerplus, you may well be very surprised/horrified/uncomfortable/shocked at what you discover!
Its not the destination that matters.
It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
