    Yeah, I'm pretty sure it would fail on that. Especially if they are leaking

    Been there done that ! like quite a few other members, rear shocks seem to have a short life expectancy. Mine went at about 46k miles iirc but I have heard of some going at quite low milage.

    Might be worth putting it in anyway at a place that does a free retest. It might just pass, but if it doesn't all you've lost is the time for the test.
