Just got off the phone with Race Tech and they informed me that my shock is not rebuildable. Race Tech in Corona, Ca. ....correct? He didn't show any thing for it if it was rebuildable. Aftermarket was his only suggestion. Although, they can do my front. So, off to Works or ebay I go.

That's the problem with our older machines. As they leave mainstream and become less popular, we lose the ability of both the OEM and the aftermarket to support us.

I would shop for any eBay shock, or contact Works (Werks?). Keep an eye out for any 87-90 shock you may come across.

I'm having the same pain with my 91.

Good luck.
