Yup, it's true the front shock absorbers are VERY hard to get if not 
impossible. Rob at PJ Grady just had some custom made shocks (front 
and rear) made up to be the exact match to the original ones, 
dimension wise. You do not need to perform any modifications at all 
to these shocks, they are a perfect fit. From what he tells me they 
have the same ride, if not better, then the originals. They are very 
NICE (I've seen them) and he also had them made to be adjustable by 
just simply pumping air into the shocks for a more stiffer response 
or letting out air for a more softer ride. Give them a call and ask 
him about them.
