You can also upgrade to a needle bearing instead of a new bushing. Lots of people claim that it's the best $30 they've ever spent. I plan on getting a set myself. I hooked up one of the eyelets on my bike and tried to rotate the shock around and there was a ton friction! You don't have to replace both eyelets, just the one with the most movement, but it really depends on the suspension design.
If the reducers came out by hand they need to be replaced. If the reducers are 2 piece they should also be replaced - use a 3 piece design. Fox has a new design : New type of Fox shock mounting hardware
I don't know if the reducers came out by hand. I just bought it off eBay. It was listed as New in Box, that he just bought the wrong size, but apparently he tried to install it before he figured out it was the wrong size. From the pics I posted, it looks like a 2 piece reducer was pushed in. The other end looks unused. I'm assuming he put the reducers in this end, tried to fit it up and realized it was the wrong size. I'm just wondering if the bushing got messed up from that or not. Deciding whether I should dispute the sale and send it back. It's a Rock Shox Monarch XX, so can I even use the new fox mounting kit on it?
