  5. Remove the self-locking nut from the knuckle.
  6. Compress the damper by hand, and remove it from the vehicle.
  7. Compress the damper assembly by hand, and check for smooth operation through a full stroke, both compression and extension. The damper should move smoothly and constantly when compression is released. If it does not, the gas is leaking and the damper should be replaced.
  8. Check for oil leaks, abnormal noises, or binding during these tests.
