I was riding on my 2 year old Gary Fisher Marlin today when i went down a curb and my Manitou Axel front fork blew up. After that the lockout feature didnt work and the compression doesnt change when I adjust it. Can this fork be rebuilt? If so around how much would that be at my lbs? Thanks

I would advise you to get a new fork.
well the fork didnt really blow up. The right side just kinda blew oil all over my leg and now it clunks when i lift up like during a bunny hop. I really dont have money for a new fork being in college and all but is it posssible to rebuil a fork like this?
see if you can make some money in the bathrooms at the local airport.

Everything is rebuildable with appropriate tools, parts, time, and money.
as mentioned already, rebuilding it will take money as well
