I just bought 2 of the 2011 700Rs each with only 100 hours of usage but, they have almost tens years on them (pictures attached). I am thinking it is best to replace them (the shocks front and rear) but not sure of the options. Need opinions from everyone here. I have never used anything other than the stock shocks. Primarily running in the Dunes, jumps under 6', I am not doing racing, just out having fun. Rider weight with gear around 220ish.
Would it be better to rebuild them or buy an aftermarket or buy OEMs ????

If your looking for cheaper options, getting your stock ones rebuilt is one option, but you can also pick up a set of new Elka Legacy shocks for about the same price. Either way you go, I highly recommend getting all 3 shock done and tuned at the same time by the same company .
