Guys,

Who sells these locally? vs buying seals and foam rings

I just did lower leg service for the first time and never realized how simple it is to do..now I have 2 other forks I want to do

Im not sure if any shops just have the foam rings, but you'd just have to ask around. Dunbar?

If your foam rings arent in terrible shape, you can easily clean them up with a soaking in Isopropyl alcohol and then squeeze them between a shop towel or paper towel to dry them off.  Repeat until clean and near new.

You can also use some nice synthetic 0W-20 or 0W-30 (I use Mobil1) engine oil for the splash oil in the lowers if you want to save on buying the RS specific stuff.

Good luck!

Good call on the clean and soak, I have a feeling that the ones in my boxxer are doing to be shot.

Ill likely call a couple of shops, just not sure if its worth the work when they are readily available in Trumplandia

Crush washers dont have to be replaced each time you remove the footnuts.  Its probably a good idea if you have them, but I have never found mine to leak after several removals and re-assemblies.

Jenson is a better bet.

I think you are SOL with shipping anything RS (SRAM) to Canada.  If you can ship it to Point Roberts or Blaine and go across and get it then you will be all good.

Only if you're cack-handed like me.

Any decent shop should be able to get them easily (we have them but not in Vancouver....). LTP distribute them.

Steed carries lots of Rockshox parts. I'd wager they'll have them.
