When I got the shock back, I was not able to set the initial sag, since the spring had lost about a quarter-inch of its length.
    Maybe some good advice here:

    There are very few folks who do enough rebuilds to actually become knowledgeable about what they are doing. Save yourself time and trouble. Unless you know with certainty that you are dealing with a knowledgeable rebuilder just deal with Ohlins direct.

    It might be a good idea to get a hold of Ohlins and see what they have to say about this rebuilder. They might even be able to help if he has any relationship with them.

    I'll try and call Ohlins and see what they say. I called the sherriff's office and they only tried to get a hold of him once with no success. I dont think they will try again.
