1984 rear shock pressure

Does anyone know how much pressure the rear shocks will handle? At the max of 57, I still get some bottoming out.

 

Is it necessary to replace the shocks, or is there something else that can be done. I have heard of people going to 80 lbs and one guy said he uses 200lbs. Won't the seals blow?

 

Thanks for responses.

the shocks do hold steady. May drop a lb or so over a year but not much of a loss.

Welcome from North TEXAS DFW area.... you should pose this question in the technical forums.. quick thoughts are... low no oil.... weak springs.. and an upgrade to progressive shock springs would do wonders.. both are basic rebuilds
