I'd do both... Most of the exchange program places offer upgraded seals, valves,etc. Could get a good rebuild and upgrade for less than$1,000.

I just sent mine in for a rebuild and upgrade. Rebuild, level 1 upgrade, flutter stack and new lower bolts were just over 800 with shipping.

I'm in the same situation. I just sent in a request to Rogue for a rebuild, but I did not know they also sold Fox & Kings. I'd be interested in the same setup, please send a PM with pricing. Thanks!

will Gen 2 stock 3.0 front shocks work on a Gen 1? Would there be any interest in them? I may part with my brand new Gen 2 fronts if anyone is interested. I just dont know if they would even work?
