I'm looking for a shop that can repair a seal and recharge my shock for my B&G coilovers.
I called B&G suspension today and they said to use penski parts when repairing the seal on my shocks. Does anyone know of a shop in socal that can repair shocks and are familiar with penske parts??

You need to find a circle track speciallist. Penske repair parts are available from sources such as Coleman Racing, a company that speciallizes in supplying parts to circle-trackers.

By "Circle Track Speciallist," I mean a shop that speciallizes in catering to the needs of circle track racers (dirt tracks and short tarmac like Irwindale). When you do find a shop that'll rebuild the shocks, you'll still probably have to take the assemblies off of the car, and they may insist that you remove the springs before service, too. You may try asking on a local Autocrossing mailing list or in a regional section of an autocrossing or circle track web forum.
I don't know a phone number, but Coleman's web site is www.colemanracing.com, just keep in mind that they're only a parts distributor, and probably won't be of any help about finding a repair shop.

But if they are leaking then they will fail the MOT (annual inspection) in the UK...
