Default Shop recommendation for a rear shock rebuild

Can anybody recommend a shop in the South Denver Metro area to do a shock rebuild? It started leaking last week after a trip to Dallas and back (relatively loaded). Its a Gen 1 2007 with ~9K on the clock.

I'm out in Parker but can drop it off anywhere in the Denver Metro area.

Thanks
Rojo

Don't know that I would have it rebuilt unless I did it myself. By the time you have it done you are close to an aftermarket. I considered Race Tech. They will hard anodize the body.

I have had relatively good luck with the stock shock. I ran a '01 for about 100,000 miles. I never had one fail but changed it a couple of times because I picked one up cheap off ebay.

I just bought a Cogent Adventure. Haven't got it yet but it is going on a '07 with about 9,000 miles on it. If you are interested I will sell you the stock one for $100 + shipping.

swjohnsey, that sounds like a deal. Don't see anything better on ebay at the moment. I was also looking at sending to topgun for a rebuild.

Will PM with my info.

Thanks
