bump -

Admin, I'd like the title to be changed to "(3/3 Compressed)"
to better match its siblings
"(1/3 Compressed)"
and
"(2/3 Compressed)"

The edges for screw holes are missing, but this is a subfile problem.

The coloring seems weird to me. Shouldn't the spring holder be of color 72 rather than 8?

Furthermore there's two different colorings of this part:
http://www.bricklink.com/PL/48912c01.jpg
http://img.bricklink.com/P/85/48912c01.gif

In the second one (which is also which I have at hand too, it's from Dirt Crusher), the setting ring is of what seems to be color 7 (not 71? :?) and the spring holder is of dark stone again though the entire part is that.

At least the color here should possibly be color 72, not 8. Maybe other shortcuts are also needed for the other color scheme?

And when I say Dirt Crusher, I mean the one only true yellow Dirt Crusher from 2003. :)

Indeed. Colour 8 seems to be wrong.

I'm sorry, but something is very wrong here, in all four shortcut descriptions.

IMO, this is NOT one shock absorber compressed into four different lengths, or positions.
The shock absorber is only in two different positions, compressed or uncompressed.
Only the spring is compressed into four different length.

Why are they called "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L"?
I don't see that a 90 degree twist of the setting ring gives the absorber a different length.
It only pre-tensions the spring.

Bricklink has named these "Technic Shock Absorber 11.5L".
c01 and c02 are actually 11.2L long.
co3 and c04 are 9.5L long.

I dont have one of these, so I can't meausure the movement, but I wonder:
Are they correct in lenght?
Is the uncompressed absorber 11.2L or 11.5L long?
Is the fully compressed absorber 9.5L long?
If I look inside c03 and c04, it seems to be possible to compress them a little bit more.

IMO, it must be like this:
48912c01, "Technic Shock Absorber 11.5L (Uncompressed)"
48912c02, "Technic Shock Absorber 11.5L (Uncompressed, Pre-tensioned)"
48912c03, "Technic Shock Absorber 11.5L (Compressed)"
48912c04, "Technic Shock Absorber 11.5L (Compressed, Pre-tensioned)"

I'm wrong here. It IS adjustable into two different lenghts.

See a video demonstration here:

A full review here:
http://www.techlug.fr/review-lego-technic/8420/moto-de-course-8420-carl-arnese-2005

Though I still think it needs better descriptions.
Maybe like this:
48912c01, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Long)"
48912c02, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Long, Pre-tensioned)"
48912c03, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Short)"
48912c04, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Short, Pre-tensioned)"

My suggestion:
48912c01, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Extended)"
48912c02, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Extended, Pre-tensioned)"
48912c03, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Contracted)"
48912c04, "Technic Shock Absorber 11L/9L (Contracted, Pre-tensioned)"

Short/Long would imply there's two versions of the part while it's actually the same one at different setup.

For what it's worth I have the part at hand here and the model itself looks spot-on accurate.
