You can rebuild them. I'm not sure who sells the kit, but I know of folks that have rebuilt them. Maybe someone else will chime in shortly.;)

I had a similar problem with mine. However, on closer inspection I discovered a crack at the bottom of the shock absorber. I replaced them with a pair of progressives. It's nice to be able to adjust them periodically without having to monitor the air supply. Before beginning the rebuild make sure the seals are the only place where the air is escaping.



Good Luck
