    Shop that rebuilds Fox front susp. forks?

    Anyone know of a shop that does fox suspension forks? mine is in need of a rebuild as it is leaking now. turns out utah took it's toll on this fork that is used to more mild Texas rides. also, how much should i expect to pay for this kind of work? I read on PUSH's website that they charge $165 for a rebuild.

    Hey.

    We do Fox forks here at Go-Ride in Salt lake , $65 labor plus $25 for seals.

    Push does great work but the $165 includes modifying the fork to use different seals.

    Just a vote that Go-Ride does great work. That is a shop where you should be spending all of your mtn bike money.

    Nothing against Go-Ride

    But I can show you how to change the seals and rebuild your fork in about 30 min. Fox forks are actually very easy to service yourself and require no special tools. I like to change the oil in my forks at least annually so it pays to be able to do it yourself. Get onto Fox's website and print the instructions for your fork and take a swing at doing it solo. If you have problems then you can pay go ride 60 bucks for 20 minutes of work.

    Fox forks are so easy to work on its not worth paying someone to do it for you.

    I got the seals and fluid at chainreactioncycle.com. They have a few different fork fluids and the closest i could find was 7.5 wt. which is really close to the 7 wt. they use from the factory. otherwise you have to buy a huge container of fox brand oil. the seals are enduros so they are a bit of an upgrade too.
