    should i rebuild my WP suspension on my 505 or go aftermarket?

    I think my rear WP shock is ready for a rebuild, it sags a lot and doesn't hold a 180lb rider up and was thinking of rebuilding them all from a reputable builder if they are a good suspension, looking for MX set up or I will be buying new Peps or Elkas not sure yet any ideas?

    I had Rocket Ron do my SX shocks quite a few years ago and I've been happy with them. 260lb rider, pro-am skill MX and I couldn't complain for the money spent. I don't know what he charges now, but at the time it was around $900 for triple rate front springs, dual rate rear spring, re-valve on both, and machining on the front shocks to get additional travel out of them. I'd do it again.
    Mine:
    2017 Husky FX 450
    2009 505 SX
    2008 525 XC-modded for mx (currently 450 cylinder)
    Dad's:
    2009 450 SX
    2008 540 XC
