Rebuild Rear Shock

I've changed my mind. I have opted to rebuild the rear shock using a TaffSpeed spring. After chatting with a few folks on the Super Sports Yahoo Group I opted to reuse the housing on my rear shock. For consistency sake, I had the housing powder coated in silver to match the front shock. This is NOT true to the bike, but again this bike is mildly to moderately customized. I feel good about reusing the rear shock and not replacing it. A lot of SS owners replace it with the red/white adjustable Sebac shock for $90, but I didn't want to strip it of paint and powder coat a new shock to match the bike and in my opinion original parts are important to use as often as possible.
