Fox shocks leaking...

So the Fox remote resevior shocks are leaking. Any ideas on what sort of place to take it to get this remedied? Or do I need to call Greg at SG and talk to them to find out?

Or does this mean they're toast and I need new ones?

they are rebuildable, You should be able to find someone in your area to rebuild them or you could rebuild them yourself. Sorry I'm not more help.........

but have you seen the D110 hi-cap project I'm working on now?

Kevin, you may want to try some motocross places and ATV places. Allot of those places rebuild the shocks for Dirt bikes and ATVs and they may be able to rebuild them for you. I may have to rebuild mine this summer so if you end up rebuilding them yourself I would be interested to hear how it goes.

K, I would call fox & ask them to recomend a rebuilder if you don't want to. Getting these things charged is a pain in the ass for me.

Fox will also rebuild them direct. I should say they used to offer the service

How old are they? Depending on the answer, you can drain the oil and put in ATF oil which will cause the seals to expand, leak solved. They might not need to be rebuilt. And, charging is a piece of cake. Anybody with a nitrogen bottle can do it.

Sorry about that. If you were closer, you could ship the shocks to me and I can do them for you. I had to spring for the nitrogen setup for my airshocks. In the future, if you want you can buy the hose from polyperformance for like $40 or so and then go to any welding shop when you need them charged.

fox will do the work on them.
i had Brandon replace a housing on one of mine just a few months back, after i mushroomed one of the ends.

i've also had one of my remote res lines leak at the o-ring on the shock body. you might check there first.
that's an easy fix. new oring new oil and charge....
