My stock shock has failed and I'd like to replace with another OEM shock for now. There are some on ebay but I'd feel more confident buying from a member here if possible. Anyone have a take-off they know is decent?

Many thanks,

-Bill

Thanks for your offer. As it happens I just installed a Blackbird shock and hope to be able to test it the next couple days. I'll post back here if I'm no longer interested in a stock shock.

I set my bb shock with 17 threads of preload above the adjuster. Seems about right. The damping adjuster was 1.5 to 2 turns out from fully in. I forget, but something like that.

It looks like I'm good to go with the Blackbird shock so won't be needing your stocker. THanks for the offer though!
