Question about 2002 Isuzu Rodeo
Koumer: Shocks are not replaced base off of mileage or age, they are replaced based off of they way they perform. They are designed to dampen the suspension movement.
In short, if you push down on the vehicle, and bounce it, you should feel some resistance and the vehicle shouldn't just jump up and bounce around. Usually, you will hear a kind of kushhh sound from the shocks when they are in motion. You also can look at them.
Where the bright silver part (piston) comes out of the cylinder, it should be dry and free of oil. If there is oil accumulated around the area where the piston enters the cylinder, the shock is on it's way out or it has failed.
I hope I haven't been confusing in my explanation.
