    I need to get the rear shock on my bike serviced and looking at the costs of a service on my rear shock, it works out almost as cheap to just buy a new shock (2013 Fox Float CTD Evolution LV shock TFTuned Service with Push Tuning @ approx £150+P&P vs a brand new RockShox Monarch Plus shock @ £180)

    Would it be worth servicing the shock or just going for a new one? if going for a new one is it simply a case of measuring the old shock and getting a replacement with the same dimensions? or is there more to it?

    you would need the shock to be tuned for your bike too, not just the stroke length and e2e measurement. I looked into this myself and just got my shock serviced.

    The thing is, Push tuning is an extra, not part of the service.
    Plus, unless the new shock has the right tune for your frame, you’ll have to get that tuned too.
    If your shock does what you want it to then just get it serviced. Send it to Loco and it’ll be around £90 for a clean and re-charge.

    When they push your shock they do a service. only costs 40-50 more on top of a service.

    Poah didn’t realise I couldn’t push tune my shock! Brand new monarch plus from chain reaction is £179.99! I think I will just get the shock serviced then and see how it goes.

    @poah The OP hasnt said if they actually want their shock tuning, they were asking about servicing not tuning.
    Obviously if you’re going to get your shock tuned then a service should be part of that, not as an extra.

    No where is tuning mentioned UNTIL the pricing at TFT.

    My mate got a brand new Kashima Fox shock from Evans fork service place just last week and it was something daft like £150. Fox were clearing some stock and they bought a load.
