A fork/shock rebuild involves the complete disassembly of the damper. All components are inspected for wear and new components are installed upon customer consent. Fork seals are replaced and shock seal heads are rebuilt. Fork tubes and shock shafts receive a fine finishing treatment to reduce friction and prolong seal life.
