Btw is there anyone tried modern o-rings for the shocks, that's is easy to get hold of by any chance?
CVA shocks have allways been good to me, so I don't really need after market o-rings, but just makes it more easy to source.

But non CVA shocks on my trail rigs on the other hand is a different story.
8 of 10 times most shocks tend to leak after a while.

I used modern Tamiya red o rings when rebuilding my old Fox’s shocks recently, and they seem to be good so far. Part number 50597

I've always used modern red o-rings in rebuilding CVAs & never thought it might be considered "wrong" :blush:
