    Has anyone found a reliable place to rebuild the shocks on the 512TR?

    I got mine done in a place in California
    I just google shocks
    I sent them 6 shocks when the car had 80k on it
    they came back fine
    I will have to look for the paper work on the place
    but any good shop can do the shocks
    its the bushings that are a pain
    get them first
    hope this helps
    PM if you need more information

    how many miles on the car?

    I had mine done with PSI, expensive but they came back great. I would send them the whole shock and they will reassemble it for you. I scratched mine while reassembling.

    why rebuild and not just get new ones?

    Because you will have to get the new ones rebuilt also. They are NOS and the inside bushing deteriorates over time. Tim did a great write up on it.
