    +1 for Eric.
    He told me about the RockShox Reba oil and dust seal trick on the Fox 32s.
    Naysayers never apologize. Critics go to their grave thinking everyone else is wrong.

    A push for PUSH Industries

    I'll put in a plug for PUSH industries. They have a great reputation and did a terrific rebuild on my Fox 130 RLC a few years back, with a turn-around time of only about a week. I haven't had a problem since.

    Thanks..I will give Erick a call at Pedal Pushers..he is closer than other shops.
    I have used it for 3 years..I believe the oil change was due.

    Dave at Redstone Cyclery in Lyons recommended I bring my Float 32 to Salvagetti in LoDo to have it rebuilt. $75 all in and she's running great now.

    It seems that no matter what you need done on a bike in the front range, the basic recommendations on this forum are always Pedal Pushers, Golden Bike Shop, The Fix, Salvagetti, and/or Redstone. I feel you won't be treated poorly at any of them even though I don't have experience with all of them. I'd say go to whichever is closest unless their backlog is ridiculous.

    Dirt Lab and Push are a bit more specialized in their work, so they're thrown in quite often as well.

    PP, they return emails and phone calls and are easy to work with and do great quality. Got tired of not getting responses from both Push and Dirtlabs even though they do good work.

    so - is doing a fork overhaul that difficult that it makes a difference on who you let do the service? (i really have no idea)

    not difficult if everything goes as planned. a good tech is needed when things are go awry. Which after 3 years likely something is needed a bit more than an normal overhaul. Or something is worn out to the point it either needs replacement or time to just keep riding it into the ground, that's where a good tech can steer you correctly.

    Dirt Labs did me well. One thing I will add is stay away from the enduro seals. A bike shop talked me in to them and the shock was just sticky and faceted rather than smooth and plush that never went away a year later. Drove me nuts but it never leaked again... Choose your poison!

    Adventure Cycling has taken care of my Float and my RP23. If you are close, PUSH won't do you wrong either.

    Push Industries in Loveland......can't go wrong. Not only can you get the fork rebuilt, but you can get it custom valved and tuned for your riding weight/style. Amazing results....I highly recommend them.

    No real trick to it. It's just a basic fork seals replacement.

    Should take about 10-20 minutes depending on your comfort level.
    You can remove dust wipers w/ the handle end of a crescent wrench inserted in the lowers...but it will destroy your old dust wipers. Long tire levers works also. Use (an oil) seal press so they're installed normal to the stanchions, else you'll have stiction. The grease will weep out of the dust wipers for the first ride or three, but should stop. Lube oil from the bottom...fork oil or Float Fluid...anything will do here. The grease...use Slickoleum/Slick Honey by Englund, or Manipoo stuff...fork specific grease that won't dissolve in fork oil.

    Buy the Reba seals and dust wiper. Remove your Fox dust wipers. Install the oil seals w/ a seal press. put some grease on and above the oil seal. Install the new dust wipers. Reassemble w/ fresh lube oil from the bottom before you secure the footnuts. Done

    Their turn around time on forks right now is awesome, pretty much the next day after receiving it.
    Maintain internal heights.
