WTB Good Used or New Engine Shocks 123

Bumblecup (bile-yellow 240 that my girlfriend has claimed) needs engine shocks badly. Not enough to spend $38/ea on them though.

Anyone parting out a 123 that has good or recently new engine shocks and want to sell them and a good set of engine shock mounts?

Email me.

Only way I know is on a running engine. When off the car, they're stiff whether they're good or bad. Of course, major leaks are telling.

I believe if you unhook 1 side at a time and shut the car off you should see
a rocking to that side. If the engine still rocks with shock on it's bad.
Or no diffence when on or off it's bad.

The engine shock I believe just keeps the engine from rocking when stopping engine.

Thanks. That's why I need a set, engine rocks with the current ones. The question was how to test a used set. Hooking up shocks just to see if they work or not isn't an option. We need a way to test without having to mount them.
