I screwed up $$$$$. Help!!!

I took my rear shock apart in my 97 xr400. Following the manual as to rebuild it. The manual says there are welds on the threaded end of the shock rod. I didn't see any welds so i assumed the nut would spin off. Then nut came loose very easly and i was able to spin it off with little trouble. After i got it off i found that the last 3 or so threads had broke off exposing the valve peice inside the rod.:banana:

Now i have to replace the rod but the local shop says it is no longer made. Grrrrrr Here on TT the rod costs $183. Ouch. I have been looking for another used stock shock or an after market one but have had no luck

Any suggestions for a reasonable aftermarket one or know some one who is looking to sell one?

Thanks

Sincerly;

Ebay?

Will a 2001 shock fit my 1997 bike?

What years will not fit my bike?
