GL1100 Rear Shock Rebuild Video

Another video(not by me) of rebuilding the stock Showa GL1100 rear shocks and replacing the old springs with Progressive springs.
He shows the part numbers for the seals and o-rings in the video.
The Progressive springs to order are Progressive Suspension Spring (Kit D) 00-1170
