On absorbing bumps, baby

Since my last post I decided to install the new rear shocks for the bus. I bought them a month ago and they’ve just been sitting there. Time to get them on!

Out with the old.

Well, these look like they are the same length as the front shocks, so let’s try it out.

Drives like a new car. I can still feel the rear dragging along, but the front no longer porpoises on every speed bump or curb cut. I’ll need to contact Amazon about the listing, as it explicitly says “VW Transporter – Rear” with a separate listing for the front. At least the fasteners are broken free for when I get around to installing new rears.
