A friend of mine is asking is it normal that if you push in the shock, it does not bounce back?

Yes...that's what the spring is for....The shock purely controls the speed of the "bounce" and the spring does all the "bouncing"


Hence cars with blown out shocks bounce all over the place, because the shock cannot control the "bounce" i.e. dampening
