Well still looks like Im going to have to go with new shocks. Cost almost as much to revalve these as to buy a lesser expensive revalvable shock. Thanks for the help guys

1jethro- thanks but those are what I had and was hopping to get them revalved for a bump stop setup. No luck so I ordered a set of Pro shocks. Be here end of the week. Thanks though.

Any of you guys have any coilover kits for the fine thread carrera's that you'd be willing to part with?
