    Installing a Monarch Plus RC3 on a Mission 27.5

    I'm replacing the Fox Float that came with my Mission 2 27.5 with a Monarch Plus RC3, since the Float's seals blew out and won't hold pressure after one ride. The bolt used on the lower eyelet is too large for the Monarch. Anyone else run into the same problem or know where to get a smaller bolt or remove the bushings?

    I think you are supposed to remove the bushings. There are no bushings on the lower eyelet of my fox shock because the bolt is designed to fit in there. I only have bushings on the top eyelet.

    Here is the blowout chart from there tech page. They only have the old mission on there but all the stuff is pretty much the same.

    Did you ever get it installed? If so how is it and what did you have to do?
