Hi all.

I've just completed replacing all bushes, ball joint, tie rod ends on the
driver's (rhd) side and installed new spax gas shocks on both sides of my
'67 MKIII, and while I have a very smooth ride for the most part, I am still
experiencing a hard shock on every depressed type of bump (like a shallow
pothole or low manhole cover) encountered on the right side,. Feels like a
direct hit from the wheel to the frame--very stiff jolt.

Shocks are set to softest setting (no difference when set up a few clicks)
The car sits evenly, torsion bars seem evenly set, wheel bearings ok...where
else should I be looking for the cause of this poor shock absorption? As
usual, any and all thoughts greatly appreciated.
