Need help rebuilding rear shock

So basically I have a problem where my shock is leaking air from the air chamber to the rest of the shock. I was told that I should rebuild the shock, and from what I understand that just means replacing the seals? My rear shock is a X-Fusion O2 with 120mm. I have been looking for a rebuild kit but I cannot find one that is in stock. Can anyone point me in the right direction? And is this a easy job that a noob mechanic can do, or would it be wiser to have a shop do it.
Thanks, Jack

I don't remember what year your shock is, but a search for "Xfusion o2 seal kit" returns plenty of results. https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=59970

Watch the video of the process and decide if this is something you can do yourself.

Your Xfusion looks similar to my Fox. I just serviced mine for the first time ever last week. It was easy. Just follow instructions on the video. Enjoy!
