03 sv650s

how can I tell if a rear shock is still good?

I purchased a zx10 suspension off of ebay in order to swap it out on an sv650. When I received the shock, it had scrapes and scratches all over as if its been in a wreck. The seller claims the bike he bought was never listed as a wreck and that's how it was when he took it off.

So my question is, how can I tell if a rear shock is damaged or still good? Cosmetically it looks like its been scraped up but the shock and spring itself seem to be fine.
