March 24th, 2009 | Suspension, The Sharka Rebuild
Here we are! The final part of the TEIN rebuild tale. Part 1 and part 2 can be seen on their respective links.
The UPS tracking showed that I’d come home to find my TEINs waiting for me tonight. It was not wrong. There was a happy box on my doorstep with a familiar logo. I cracked it open and found my beloved shocks in factory-fresh condition! Well, minus a little paint from 60k miles of rubbing on other parts.
Notice the two rear shocks. They have a protective bubble cover over their threads and fresh bump rubber installed. Two of the shocks received new shafts, but my documentation didn’t indicate which ones. I’m pretty certain that it was the rears after seeing how they were packaged. I guess the big hit the 97 took bent more than just the bodywork.
Mmmmmm. So new!!!
So that’s it. Less than a month since I taped up the box and gave my precious shocks to UPS. Now they’re back home, clean and fresh, and ready for action.
