Re: Stock shock rebuild/revalve

I am debating on buying a second stock shock from EBay and having it rebuilt and revalved by Race Tech (or other suspension co) as a less expensive option against buying a new aftermarket shock.

Have any of you done this, do you recommend it, and how much money did it cost?

Re: Stock shock rebuild/revalve

I think Dan Kyle has said that revalving the stock shock isn't worth it. He reworks the front forks, but not the rear shock. I'm sure others will chime in with more info...

Re: Stock shock rebuild/revalve

The only person I know of that did this is Ondablade from Ireland and although he said is was an improvement, I believe he felt it wasn't worth the small amount of savings, as they had to redo it once or twice to get it right. I do believe a couple of other members have gone this route, but I never read anything about the final results from their 'adventure'.

Re: Stock shock rebuild/revalve

Thanks for the input. I guess that explains why I've seen several on EBay for $40 or so.
