Any way to fix broken rear shock? (rebuild kit)

I was out riding in the dunes today and got off to pick up something I dropped and noticed my left rear shock had come unscrewed from the bracket that connects to the rear a-arm. When it became disconnected, it shattered that plastic shock cover and I lost the circular part that holds the coil spring on the shock (please see pictures). I searched all day for a rebuild kit for the shock, but to no avail. Does anyone know of anything that exists, or is my best bet to pay the $100 for a used one on ebay? (was really hoping not to spend that kind of money). I attached some photos:

What are you pricing for $100 on eBay, one complete shock? And what state do you live in?

$100 is not a bad price for a pair of good clean shocks. You have to have it, so I'd jump on it before someone else does, the only other used pairs on eBay now are $250.00!

My guess is that the parts from Honda would cost more than the $100 shocks on ebay.

Currently: 400ex, Lexx MXe, K&N w/outerwears
Outlaw 525 IRS

Save the Oregon Dunes!
