So I feel dumb... I've watched the vids, read the threads, etc... I've got a 2004 Fox Float R that's never had seals replaced... I figure it could be time.
Washed the bike and pulled the shock. The lower mount bolt is slightly bent. Top bolt is fine. I put the top of the shock in the Workmate and unthread the air sleeve with no problem. Then I realize the air sleeve won't fit over the silver spacers where the lower shock mount bolt goes (see pic).
The silver spacer section doesn't want to come out. Should it want to? Should it easily slide out? Unthread? Tap out with a mallet? The air sleeve won't slide over it with it in place. I tapped it somewhat but I'm afraid to try too hard without more knowledge.
I am wondering if the spacer could somehow be bent, since the bolt inside it was. I'd be surprised, I guess...
Thoughts? (sorry for crappy pic)
