I have a 2012 HT and just replaced the DU bushings on the RP2 with Fox's 5-piece shock hardware. During the disassembly two aluminum spaces/washers felt out from the lower eyelet mount apprx 3mm thick. These aren't a part of the old DU/reducer setup, but I don't know whether to put them between frame and swingarm or between black plastic ring of Fox's 5 piece setup and the swingarm. The former option seems to cause the swing arm to be compressed to fit on the low eyelet. I've tried both options, but don't want to ride until I know for certain. Already called Salsa and they were of little help. Tech offered me one CAD diagram which wasn't clear and then bucked at the idea of looking at a bike they had, telling me that using the new hardware would void warranty and I should call Fox. Ugh. If someone could take a closeup pic of the mounting from a '12 HT at the swing arm mount for lower eyelet, I would greatly appreciate it.
