Shocks are an important part of a car’s suspension package, and getting them consistent can take time and a lot of patience. Most of us have seen shock stands or even shock pumps to manually remove air bubbles from oil for more consistency. However, I recently saw this trick electronic shock pump in the pits of the Factory Yokomo Team and had to take a closer look. This unit is electronically controlled and even has a barometric gauge on top to show the air pressure inside the vacuum chamber. The tool can also be used to build fluid filled diffs for more consistent performance. Pretty cool.

The machine uses a barometric gauge at the top.
