I can't see why the original shocks won't be rebuildable - it's a fairly common practice. The unit replacement costs quoted by Faust are outrageous. Price resistance will see a market develop for rebuilding and/or further development of these shocks. Even in the small Australian market there is sufficient volume and demand to support shock rebuilding outfits. I would expect that as demand for rebuilds of the ESA shocks is established the niche will be filled. It just takes enough people to ask and establish a market demand.karlb said:but has anyone found out for sure are they rebuildable??
