    EDC shocks rebuild possible!

    Hello Group,
    Garcia is an airforce engineer and is in the middle of being
    transfered from England to the US.
    He owns a 95 M5 DV and has kindly offered to help with rebuilding EDC
    shocks.
    He is in the process of rebuilding the first set and is now looking
    to locate all necessary parts (seals,valves etc)
    As soon as he is organized and back in the US (in January) he has
    offered to rebuild dampers for those of us who need it.
    He will also let us know the cost for both a simple seals job or for
    the full refurbishing.
    It looks as if we may have solved this neverending saga.
    He would really like to put his hands on the workshop manuals, and
    that is why I posted the message regarding them.
    Jaime

    As I said Garcia will be ready to do so in January.
    He is relocating to the US from England.
    He has found seals and parts needed for the rebuild and is completing the first set of shocks.
    He is in the process of determining also the cost.

    Guys,
    It looks as if the prices will be as follows for EACH damper:
    Simple reseal $ 150 plus parts
    Complete ovehaul and rebuild $ 300 plus parts
    Shipping will be of course paid by whoever needs the job done.
    It's still less than half of the cost for new ones!
    We'll all have to wait till February as Garcia needs to get settled and organized in his new home and get all the necessary spares and
    old shocks which he'll have ready to ship on exchange and his e-mail and address so that each of us may contact him directly.
    Anyone who has any old shocks front or rear EDC or rear SLS will be welcome to get them to Garcia eventually.
    He has been a US Air Force engineer for 17 years and he's used to work on "slightly" more complicated systems of actuators and dampers.
    I implicitly trust him both for this and because he's one of the ones actually working for our freedom, though I do not know him personally,
    nor am I his agent.

    What is the different between SLS and EDC rear absorb? Does the EDC suspension system also with the SLS function?
