I had an accident earlier in the week and my front right fox shock is bent, anyone know if just the shaft can be replaced, gonna get them rebuilt this summer anyway, so hopefully going to have them replace the shaft also.

Best I can tell you is I have a 96 'Polaris XLT SP with Fox Shocks, not sure what model/type the shocks are. When I bought it in November I had to have the shaft replaced on one in the front. It was bent like yours. It cost $45 for the shaft. They did the shaft, seals, oil, and gas. Seals and labor were free since the guy missed the bent shaft when he went over it before selling it to me. He also recharged the shock on the other side so they would be equal. He didn't charge me for the recharge but it cost 5 bucks if I was having it done.

yes you can have just the shaft replaced. I'm not sure where you live, but the shaft should be fairly cheap and labor shouldn't be more than a half hour. I am assuming that shock is a a standard shock and they are pretty easy to do. If the person you are having do it tells you its gonna be an hour or more than labor I'd look around.

I'm in North East PA. Things tend to be more money here. You'll probably get at least the parts cheaper than me. Anyway good luck!

i live around thief river falls and i'm only going by carver performance general quotes. The biggest cost you'd have is the shipping up here. Otherwise you should easily find someone in the cities area to do it cheap.
good luck

yes, I have a Carver Performance catalog and the shaft seemed to be at least half the price I paid at the Polaris dealer.
