No not rebuildable that I am aware of... you'd need new seals. You could drop some 400f shocks on it if you want about a 2 inch drop in the rear, guess it depends on what you're going for. Might get lucky on a nice one on ebay to replace it for cheap... cleaner the metal the better chance it's intact. But if you want to replace some newer style progressives should work well.

They are not meant to be rebuilt, but the resto guys figured it out.
Not economical though.

Don't waste your time with DCC or the junk they sell.

Either find the same meh stuff they sell else where for less.
Or spend a few more bucks (~$150) and get actual shocks
