    PA or NJ shops capable of Fox X2 service/rebuild?

    Title is pretty self-explanatory: Im looking for a local(ish) shop capable of performing a full (air and damper rebuild) on my X2 shock. Anyone know of any shops in PA or NJ capable of doing the work in a timely manner in-house? It currently sounds like its full of jelly and though its still under warranty, Im not pumped on Foxs month-long waitlist.

    Id prefer options within 45 minutes of Easton, Pa, but Im open to mailing it to a shop outside of that range.

    Thanks for any help you may be able to provide in advance.

    I think Shirk's bike shop is capable of doing that. Give them a call 717-445-5731

    In my experience with local shops around the Philly area the best bet is to send it out. I've found Dirtlabs to be great and very fast for service. Usually I have the item back within a week, including shipping.

    i personally haven't used dirtlabs, but my friends who have used them have had good experiences as well.

    yes, sending stuff out sucks, but shops that actually service rear dampers are unfortunately few and far between.

    Well if anyone is interested in a local Dirtlabs alternative, Mucker and Superstang were correct! Shirks does full service on air can and damper on X2s. Thanks to everyone for chiming in with suggestions. Im going to get the shock packaged up and sent down to Shirks!

    HA. I was just down there this afternoon and talked to one of the mechanics that does fork and shock work and asked him that question.

    I recommend that you take a trip down to pick it up when it's complete. It's a great shop with great prices. And I'm not just saying that cause I'm on the team.
