that's kinda sketchy considering you need to lift the car off the cinder block; but it may be your only option
do you have a wheel you can put on it?

Remove said shocks from car. Test the shock by compressing and expanding it. If it moves with out any sticking and feels like it has pressure it is good. If it jitters/stops and starts, or moves too easily it is bad.
