    Default My Civic's rear shocks

    Hi

    I changed the whole suspension of my Civic95 last June with all new & imported stuff but its been just 8 months and the rear shocks have already leaked though ive been driving it very safe no bumps no nuthing... can anyone tell me why did they leak so early??? the car is on CNG and i installed spacers in it... could that be the reason?? im not convinced that spacers alone can damage the shocks like this...

    as for now... what good options do i have??? any good place to get the work done from? which brands do i have? which brands should i consider? and how much do they cost?


    THANX in advance

    oohh thats bad.bro i dnt see any specific reason for this if u hav changed it a little while ago.do u recall passing over even a single pothole or a bump..??
    if not than sure spacer is the reason for this.bcuz spacer uses the space which is basically meant to b utilized by the shock,so if u put spacers,that space is not there now and the shocks get a bad effect of this.they r very much pressurized due to spacer.im very against this spacer thing.if possible,get this spacer out nd get sum desi shocks that are meant for cng.those work perfectly i hav tried them on my previous car.

    spacers are of no use, as they just increase the ride height. but what about cylinder's weight? you should have used cng springs. its no fault of shocks.
    It is an interesting question how far men would retain their relative rank if they were divested of their clothes.

    don't install spacers they destroy the whole suspension. You should have gone for KYB Gas Shocks i have installed them in my civic they work fine and give more smooth ride.
