    Looking for a leaking Mag-Ride shock to see if I can reseal it

    Looking for a leaking Mag-Ride Shock that someone is going to throw away. Want to see if I can reseal it. Hardest part would be sourcing the oil and possibly some of the seals, but it should only be the main seal that needs to be replaced. Just want to see how fancy it is compared to an emulsion or reservoir shock like Fox or King. Rebuilt plenty of those and just want to see if it can be done. Included a pic of a hyd. bump stop somewhat torn apart. Swapped spacers with a friend since I wanted to go from 4 inches to 2 inches of travel and he wanted the opposite.

    Will do. Friend got his rear end done on his truck and we will be going testing and shock tunning this Saturday. Should be fun. Haven't played in the desert in a while.
