My shock blew the fluid on the floor so I need to rebuild, preferred repair, or replace the shock.
Anyone have experience with this year bike and know of a good but not too pricey rear shock replacement. Would like adjustable compression and rebound if possible? Factory shock is $1300 if you can find one... NUTS!
It seems 2001 is an odd year. No rebuild kit that I can find. It's the red spring which seems to be another unique thing about my shock. Can't find a rebuild kit for this shock either unless another kit would work?
I saw one used on Ebay but it looked like it had a much harder life than mine.

For that price I would be looking for an after market one. All you really need is the top eye to bottom eye distance and bolt size. Dia may be an issue so check that too.

Thanks for your input!
Yeah, it does seem to be the best option except the shocks I have found don't have adjustable dampening and I can't find any reviews for the aftermarket shock on my wife's DRZ. I'm getting closer to pulling the trigger...
