    Not needed for most recent models of rear shocks, overkill

    You may want to be careful using one of these... They tend to trap dirt underneath them and that can then scratch the shock shaft. If you do decide to go with one, make sure you are very thorough cleaning all the time.

    I had a shock scratched using one and won't ever use them again - but then other's may have better experiences to share.

    What is happening to your shaft that makes you think you need to protect it.?

    This type of product is equal to snake oil.

    I guess I was thinking water/mud/junk on the shaft would go past the o ring once it gets a little wear on it and then................................
