    You mean the "Strutz"?
    Why would you want to?
    They were terrible in 1993....

    Yes, i agree. The old stuff I removed was solid..!

    Have you heard of anyone substituting an open coil spring in the tube?

    I took me 1 second and Google to find this

    But honestly...I had those forks and they were junk in 1993. You're throwing money away.

    Open coils for Tange shocks

    I did rebuild my Tange shocks using two springs that come on a Home Depot short piece of hose thing that they sell to protect your garden hose where it is connected to the spigot. The springs happen to be the correct size ! You can use two springs in one tube. They are impossible to find elsewhere.It worked on my bike..A bit softer than I would have liked, but way better than rigid.The foam things were like rocks when I removed them.
