Does anyone Rebuild PP Sachs struts?

Why would I ask?

Just for purposes of playing in the Stock RallyCross class.

Or what's the best way/option to comply with this rule for RallyCross:
Are all shocks/dampers unmodified OEM or unmodified mass‐produced aftermarket replacement units intended by the manufacturer for the specific year, make and model with the same number of adjustments?
Yes, probably a dumb question...

Even if you could find someone to do it most shops charge >$200/corner for a rebuild. I doubt it's possible due to the crimp seal design in most dampers. New looks to be about $1,300/set which ouch.

Rule feels written to favor Bilstein B6's, Koni orange might not suck either, KYB if you're desperate.

Use Bilstein B6, they're fantastic for exactly that.
