Is that possible on telescopic? What type of shock are you talking about, lever arm ?

If it is anything modern just change the shock absorbers for new ones.

This is the shock absorber http://g02.s.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1zqbtI...Freelander.jpg

I think to give a hole in the bottom of the damper ,emptied of oil and refill with new oil .....with a increased viscosity

If it is old then just buy another one. What you are saying is possible to do, but not many people will want to do so due to the hazards involved.

Interesting. I am suprised this is possible on a strut. Give it a go. Worst outcome is a new one. Hope it's not a gas one.

Chances are it IS a gas one. It is a bit of a bodge, but it can work.

I searched more, is pressurized with gas and is twin-tube .....
.....I think it is possible but it's hard to put into practice ....my idea has changed, I think it is more appropriate is Fork oil ....and pressurized with nitrogen.

Why not just fit new dampers?
