I think I would simply call Racetech and ask that question. Many custom shocks are sold as rebuildable. I would take that to mean 50k should still be rebuildable. They're fairly friendly to talk with and I think they'll give you a straight answer, they no doubt want happy customers so I doubt they'd want to rebuild a shock and then have it fail.

So anybody tried the Hagon shock ??.
For a little bit more than the Progressive they match the spring to my weight and riding style..

+1 on the Race Tech rebuild. Probabaly be as good or probably better than a Progressive but less cost.
