    Fox Float 32 RL rebuild instructions

    I have a Fox Float 32 RL fork that's on a 2008 Trek EX8. It's never been torn down...so I was going to open it up and see what she looks like (fingers crossed).

    Is there any step by step instructions online for doing this? I'm assuming based on my reading that this is something that is easily done at home?

    Also are Enduro Fork Seals still the recommended?

    Try here - WebHelp
    Go to "Service", then "Forks" then "Float" and there is a sub-heading for the RL fork with tear down and service instructions
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    Fox Float 32 RL rebuild instructions

    Thanks. I did finally find that late last night. But it doesn't say what parts I need.

    I was going to get the enduro seals but as for oil...just standard 80wt gear oil? Not Torco?

    ive had 2 forks that ive serviced myself (2006 RL100 and a 2009 Revelation) and they both used 2 different oils. I would guess that that 80wt gear oil would go on top of the air spring only, and that you would want some kind of lighter fork oil for everything else.

    if you click on that Fox link, at the top, there is a hyper link for 'Oil Volumes'. Click that link and itll take you to a table showing oil volumes and types for your specific fork. I think this is your fork below:

    8) 2002-2009 F100 & F90
    (O/B R, RL, RLC, RLT & Remote dampers)

    FOX Green 10 wt. Damper-side oil bath 155.0 ml Spring-side oil bath 20.0 ml

    FOX Float Fluid Air Chamber 5.0 ml

    Ahh - thanks for the link to that chart. But I believe I have the following Fork...

    27) 2005-2012 FLOAT & ALPS 120, 130 & 140
    (O/B R, RL & RLC dampers)


    Since my Bike is a 2008 and the fork is a Float 32 RL.


    Thanks all...off to buy supplies and see what this fork looks like inside!!

    ah sorry i misread your fork model . if you are still unsure, you can take a photo of the fork and show, but it sounds like you know already. good luck. its a messy job but not too terribly difficult.
