I have a 1995 Nissan SE,V6,extended cab. Is there a simple way to check the rear shocks? I doubt that've ever been changed and it doesn't ridecomfortably at all..Unsure Thanks....Pete

First, look for any wet spots on them. If any of them have any wet spots, replace them. If not, put it on the ground and use your knee on the bumper to jounce the car as hard as you can. Once you get it bouncing, jump off and it should stop bouncing in one bounce.
