Default 97 XLT Touring Front Shocks

Just wondering if anyone knows if there are any other polaris shocks that will bolt on and work. Looking for a rebuildable type of shock instead of the non rebuildable. if anyone has done this suscessfully please let me know.

Pull them off and measure your shock, only one i cant see fitting is the piggy back type.

I have an entire Fox set up from an 96XLT Xtra 12 in my garage. I have to rebuild the shocks then they will be for sale. I think the front shocks are something like 18" center to center. You may be able to find something local but if not, let me know.
