    Well, obviously the first sign would be visible phisical damage.

    To test for worn out shocks, I use the rebound method. Push on each corner of the vehicle, and if it takes more than one rebound bounce to come to a rest, then the shocks are most likely bad.

    Gabriel shocks are cheap. If your worried about the condition of yours, just replace them. You might feel a big change in the handling.

    Others might have different methods though
