So I just noticed that my rear shock seems to be leaking a bit. What do ya'll suppose would be my least expensive and best solution to the problem? Should I just buy a new set-up, or can I get this one rebuilt? What years shocks fit on my bike?

Rebuilding yours is going to be far less costly than buying another one unless you steal it off eBay while no one's looking. Most suspension shops will rebuild for around $60-75, and re-valve starting at something like $150. Then you'll know exactly what you have.

I think I'm going to be checking eBay for a while and if I have no success for a week or so, I will go have it rebuilt. Thanks.
