Default Spoon/Showa shock rebuild


Hello,

How does one go about rebuilding a Spoon/Showa damper? Any recommendations on a reputable company capable of successfully rebuilding these?

Same answer. The oem shocks, and the non adjustable Spoon Showa shocks are non rebuildable. There is no way to disassemble them.

Are you looking to do this for classing reasons, or is it about remaining original?
If it is the former there are other options to retain stock springs and have someone custom valve dampers.
