Saturday I changed the seals and oil in my Fox Fit34 fork and resealed the Fox Float shock. It went easy but I had struggled to get the fork seals installed. You don't want to damage them and I didn't have a proper driver myself. Looked around and I found & used a near empty BBQ rub bottle :lol:
Worked perfect but you have to be a bit easy when tapping on a glass bottle :shock:
Brought the old seal down to home depot to find something to make a driver out of. Picked up a 1/1/2 to 1/2 reducer fitting, a short sprinkler pipe and end cap. This will work perfectly and cost me a whole $3.29 including Jerry Browns carbon tax.
