    Are these real Works Performance Shocks?

    Hi

    Is someone able to please tell me whether these are real or fake Works Performance Shocks? I have seen many shocks of the same model with a valve for damper adjusting, but these dont seem to have it. Any advice helps.

    Thanks.

    They look like they come from the 80s. Works came from same idea as S&W, usually with dual springs. These will likely be in need of rebuilding if they are indeed saveable. So apart from that, why would the spring or damping rates , or even the length be what you want?

    The only people faking it back in the 80's were Milli Vanili and Meg Ryan

    Race Tech can rebuild them with gold valves so KIWI or whatever Robert Taylors place is called can likely rebuild them.

    I have no affiliation with the above person.

    But I will confirm Live at Budikon Cheap Trick was almost certainly lip synced.

    The dream Police

    The dream police
    They live inside of my head
    The dream police
    They come to me in my bed
    The dream police
    They're coming to arrest me
    Oh no

    You know that talk is cheap
    And those rumors ain't nice
    And when I fall asleep
    I don't think I'll survive

    The night
    The night

    Cause they're waiting for me
    Looking for me
    Every single night
    They're driving me insane
    Those men inside my brain

    The dream police
    They live inside of my head
    (live inside of my head)
    The dream police
    They come to me in my bed
    (come to me in my bed)
    The dream police
    They're coming to arrest me
    Oh no
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
