I'm referring to the Spoon/Showa shocks that have the threaded lower perch, not the OEM or Spoon yellow versions. This is for a street car and not bound to any race class restriction.

Then perhaps start a new thread, and not resurrect a 10 year old thread that covers a different topic.

What I described today is what I meant 10 years ago, but I can see I should have worded it better back then.

I believe you are referring to a set of dampers like the ones in the photo below, I can't help with a rebuilder but found a pic that helps. Good luck.

Define coilover. Technically, the stock shocks are coilovers. Typically though the term refers to adjustable aftermarket shocks. Typically they are rebuildable as well.

However in this case the shocks appear to have the same nonrebuildable construction as the stock shocks, even though they are adjustable. They do not appear to be able to be disassembled.

OP, have you tried:
-Contacting Opak
-Contacting Showa
-Taking the shocks to a shop that builds motorcycle shocks (lots of motorcycles use Showas).

Are your shocks rebuildable?

10 years?. COT dang, boy.
