I have a rear blown shock on my 2006. Car only has 48,000 miles and is for leisurely cruising. I know shocks can be rebuilt as I have done so on my competition Miata but I am not part of any Solstice community. Any fellow racers out there have old shocks kicking around or advice on doing this affordably. I really don't want to spend a lot on boy toy performance as I get that rush elsewhere. Suggestions and leads would be appreciated. thanks Linda

As far as I know the stock shocks are not considered rebuildable. RockAuto sells the stock replacement for $52 each. I would buy two of those (or maybe fronts too for $68 each) and call it good.
48k miles is pretty unusually early for a shock failure, so i would not shy away from stock. I have 106k and 80k on original shocks without any issues.

Just replace them (both) with a new set stock ones they are not that expensive .I'm not aware of anyone rebuiling a stock set if that is even possible I might be wrong

In 2009, I had my 2007 GXP's rears done on recall if I remember right; mileage had no factor in the issue. Just an anecdote for reference.
