take it to a dealer, you need alot of special equipment and you need a cylinder of gas, it cost about 45$ in canada here so i imagine your looking at 25-35$ american

wow those prices seem to good to be true is that for 2 shocks or each for around that price ? if thats what its around i might as well do the rears to. would i need to do anything special when taking the rear shocks off ? like will the track or any parts fall in or no?

well for doing the rear shocks, you'll have to release the spring tension before you take out the shock, im pretty sure io ahven;t had mine out in quite a while, but one is soon to come apart, i think the shock is toast, didn;t hold a charge..... for even a month. let me know how you make out.

well i went to the dealer today for prices they said they cant rely tell me what the price will be because it may just need recharge, or rebuild or if the shaft is pitted it will be better off getting a new shock, well im haveing a hard time gettin the shock to come out in teh spindle, its like stuck or siezed on i got the 2 bolts out of the shock the top and lower the lower isnt budging
