Default More shock absorber test

For everyone that wanted tests like the KRW or Ford tests I attempted to replicate them. I used a different shock. This one is in better condition that the previous one but barely usable. I did the drop test using aprox 8 foot pounds of torque. With 10-40W oil the 23 deg drop took less than 1 second with the adjusting needle screwed all the way in. I put in "600W" oil and the same drop took 18 seconds. The temperature was 72 degrees F. Again draw your own conclusions.
