I have been searching and I know these are hit and miss. Was wondering if anyone has one they are willing to part ways with. Looking for a shock that I can send off to be serviced and set up for me and doesn't need a new shaft/bunch of parts.

thanks

Not quite the Showa Kit you're looking for, but for the price a Fox Podium RC3 is an excellent alternative. BOC (bottom out control) is one of their trim adjustments that works quite well and they're intuitive to set up; 24 clicks on all clickers, clicks for HS, locking preload, etc. I tested one back-to-back against an A-kit unit and was more than impressed: basically 90% of the Kit feel, at a better price point, and heaps better than any revalved OEM I've ever ridden.

I have one that I would consider selling. The body isn't in the greatest shape but functionally it is perfect.

I’ve got a body that’s decent I’ll sell for 200$ shipped if it’s better than DJV’s and you want to buy his shock and have your tuner swap bodies when servicing.
