    New question here. Enduro seals on a Fox F29, foam ring position?

    I'm replacing some seals on a Fox F29 (2012) with Enduro seals, but I'm a little confused about the assembly order. The (ancient) manual for the enduro seals says there is a stepped position above the upper bushing where the foam ring is supposed to be, but my lowers seem to lack this "stepping". Whenever I place the foam ring, and press in the oil seal... the foam ring gets squashed to 2mm in height, so that's probably not the correct way.

    Did anyone run into the same issue?

    The foam ring goes between the oil seal and the top fork bushing. I install the oil seal, install the wiper, then I pull the oil seal up against the bottom of the wiper, and then I install the foam ring.
