    Can your coilover shocks be rebuilt or serviced at any local offroad shop or do they need to come back to your factory for rebuilds? Do you sell any rebuild kits for these?

    Yes we do offer re-build kits and any off-road shop that can re-build race style coil-overs can re-build them.

    that they are made by edelbrock and designed by icon, and you can't rebuild them. they might be ok for stock leafs but with my deavers it was was to stiff, rattle your jaw stiff.
