i just bought an 85 rebel.it has been strutted which for me does nothing for it. it rides like a rigid without looking like one,i dont see the point. im used to a much bigger bike so this little rebel is a rough ride anyway,and takes some getting used too. the struts are 8.5' eye to eye. my question is does anybody make 8.5' shocks that will fit a rebel?

stock rebel shocks are pretty damn short and cheap too, probably your best bet. people use them a lot to drop their rear

Yeah, I'd just throw some stock shocks on there. If you don't like it, you can sell 'em easily because they're so popular.
