Question Shock Test

How do you check shocks to see if they are worn? The only way I can think of is to disconnect one end and see what they do.
What would be the best shocks for a 2002 3500 dually? The ride is really harsh.

Yea on a truck probably the best route, on a car you can do a bounce test but not so much on a truck.

Yeah. Disconnect one end and compress the shock. If it doesn't rebound it's toast.
