    new valves and a seal head alone cost more than that. Guarantee he puts in new oil, recharges, and sends it back.

    Now, now, Matt. What you THOUGHT you heard was "He sleeps with Shocks." In reality, it was "He sleeps with co..."

    ...Nevermind...

    i decided to rebuild my shocks because the delaer wanted over 100$ per shock.

    i hav a polaris manual and rebuilding seems prett easy[]


    one thing, on my shock there no IFP. so all i have to do is change all seals/0-rings and fill the bottom with oil, and the top with nitrogen ?

    If you read the attachment, you will see there is a IFP towards the right. If you don't have the tools, I can certainly rebuild them for you, have all the necessary tools to do the Fox shocks, oil, seals, nitrogen, etc.

    but the scheme says there's no IFP dept on my shocks. what does that mean, set the IFP flush?

    thanks, but there wil probalby be 40$ shipping each way[V]

    1. Loosen air screw on bottom to let pressure out. If oil comes out, the IFP seal needs to be replaced.
    2. Remove cap and shaft. Dump out oil.
    3. Use an air compressor to get out the IFP. Blow air through the air screw opening.
    4. Clean eveything with Brake Cleaner.
    5. Install new seals if needed
    6. Set IFP in shock, adjust to correct depth. See Deycore.com for depth and parts, and tools.
    Great guy. I just bought something yesterday from him.
    7. I fill the area below the IFP with oil to keep it from moving when you install the shaft. Not sure if this is the correct way but I do it.
    8. Dump in oil. Move shaft up and down to get any air bubbles to the top.
    9. Tighten cap and oil will overflow over the top.
    10. Dump out oil below the IFP.
    11. Slowly compress the shock as not to move the IFP.
    12. Charge with nitrogen to appropriate level.

    There's my 12 step program. Not to be confused with my other 12-step progam I attend weekly! J/K I'm sure others have their own way, but I figured it out on my own with some helpful internet reading. I am no expert whatsoever.

    On the bottom of the shock, there should be a number engraved on it
