I failed the test on suspension imbalance, got two new rear shocks fitted and went for the retest and failed again.

first test was:
Nearside 57mm // offside 36mm (37% imbalance).

The re-test today was:
Nearside 70mm // offside 33mm (46% imbalance).

Mechanic suggested for the Nearside rear: another new shock, top shock bushon and a bottom mount?

Could it be anything else?

don't know about shocks , never use these , but never had or seen that new shock would fail. top and lower mounts MUST be replaced at same time ! I think they there the problem for this failure
