What is involved with the repair?
First of all we prepare a repair strategy to ensure that the repair exceeds oem specifications. We take multiple measurements and reverse engineer a replacement post for the broken one. We machine the broken post to incorporate a either a shoulder or a threaded hole to maintain post alignment and float pin height. Then we machine a replacement post which is fastened with a small screw or threaded end. There are other methods of repair as well should they be required.
How much does it cost?
Our repair service cost $99.95 (US) for a single post repair and $149.95 (US) for a 2 post repair. Free return shipping to Canada & USA with tracking number.
