General Servicing

We service all kinds of shock absorbers that you may think are not serviceable including KYB, Shawa, Nitron, Ohlins, Beta, K-tech, Hagon, Wilbers, Technoflex, WP, Maxton, BMW ESA, YSS and Bitubo. This can be a significant saving on a new replacement unit.

You can either have it picked up by our courier service, send it to us yourself or you can drop it in if you’re local! When your shock absorber arrives it will be stripped and inspected – if there is any additional work we will contact you with a price. The following is included in our Shock Rebuild:

  • Full strip down of shock absorber components.
  • Examine parts for damage or wear.
  • Inspect and polish piston rod.
  • Strip piston and shims, clean and rebuild.
  • Replace oil seal and guide bush.
  • Inspect dust seal and replace if required.
  • Rebuild shock absorber using Motul oil.
  • Re-gas with nitrogen and left on test for 24 hours.

Turn around time for a general Shock Rebuild is around four working days although please be aware that this time can fluctuate depending on how busy we are. Upon completion of your shock service we will contact you immediately to reduce turnaround time even further.

Ride in service

In many circumstances special lifting equipment is required to take care of the removal and fitting of the suspension. This is where our ‘ride in ride out’ service comes into place, we handle the removing and fitting of your service before then checking that your suspension is set up correctly and ensuring that the ride heights and sag measurements are tailored towards your requirements.
