    My right Progressive 440 shock is leaking. Progressive won't fix it even if I pay them.

    Do any of you guys have a stock size/weight 440 I can buy ? Or a set of something good for sale ?

    Bill,
    In a word, Nope.
    But when I get some new shockies for YurMama, you can have my low mileage OEMs.

    Thanks Bull. Not needed. I have my stock shocks. Guess I have to bust out $600 for a new pair of something good.

    Progressive won't rebuild them because I don't have a purchase receipt. They said they won't even do it if I pay them.

    most suspension service centres can rebuild them and also upgrade the internals . it's a route I would investigate before spending out on a new Set !

    I bought a set of +1 inch YSS rears from Klaus at EPM back in 2009.
    He recently shortened them for me to +1/2 inch with shorter springs and rebuilt the internals.
    You should email him and ask if he'll do the Progressives for you.

    Plenty other good shock companies out there. If progressive doesn't want your business someone else will go out of his way to give you good service and a set of good shocks. I personally like the YSS so far but ive only put about 20,000 on then so far. I'll let you know as the mileage will grow until they are wore out or I decide I want a better set then I'll call YSS first :)

    Was thinking Progressive when I replace my rears, but this is the third or fourth time I have read reports of them not "backing their product", think I might go see them at YSS since they are based in Adelaide...……..
