Changing the rear tire last night, I noticed damage to the shock shaft that was not there when I installed the spring in November.

I'm thinking this is not good.

Is there any option other than buying a used replacement shock that may or may not be any good?
I did the 750 spring on mine, and I noticed it too.
The shock is way under-dampened with a good spring on it.
I don't think the oem shock is rebuildable but I hadn't looked into it yet either.

I was looking at some adjustable coil overs.
They was an automotive application that was fully adjustable.
It was not the cheap option, still in $350 range. But cheaper than an
aftermarket shock.
