Rebuilt rear shock

The guts of the rear shock are not much different than the front shock.

The rear shock housing was powder coated to look stock.

I ordered a new stock shock spring made by MeCur and had it powder coated black to look stock.

We replaced the oil with the same motorcycle suspension oil we used when we rebuilt the front shock.

Once oil was added it was sealed back up and looks really nice and matches the front shock we rebuilt. It also saved me some money to do this way -- not much -- but I like consistency in the looks of the bike.
