What is suspension dyno testing?
Suspension dyno testing is a very accurate method of checking the actual function of a suspension member. It does the very simple function of compressing and rebounding a suspension member, but does it very accurately. Apply from 0 to 1000 lbs of force and see how fast the suspension member compress or rebounds. The rate at which the suspension moves is a measurement of how stiff or soft it has been adjusted.
What how is the information used?
This information is complied and put into a graph for easy viewing; see one of the example tests listed on the menu to the left. This graph show you how the suspension is work at the time it was tested.
This information can then be used to accurately change your suspension. When some one say, "my suspension is too stiff", now it can be tested and you will know exactly how stiff it is. This gives you a base line for modifying your suspension. Then the suspension can be modified, changing valve pistons, Valving shims, tapering slow speed adjustment needles, and any thing else you need to do to get it perfect. When making these modification, you can see from the dyno exactly how much the suspension has been changed, and how much more or less you should change it.
