    The rebuild service through the exchange program was flawless. I called them personally, discussed what options I wanted (I chose 5.4L build with the "Flutter Stack" upgrade) - paid through paypal - 4 days later a full set of shocks were at my door (in a small crate built just for them). I swapped them out myself, put my old ones in the crate, shipped them back and received my deposit money back through paypal. It could not have been any easier.

    used ones are going to need a rebuild - (in most cases) or be quite expensive (new, take offs, for example)
    good luck in your search.
    My original thought was to have a spare set so sending off for rebuild was easier, once I found the prices or poor condition of used raptor shocks I had to give up on the idea
