    Does anyone have experience with their RS rebuild kits?

    I have a 96 Judy XC that I'm trying to revive. Their cartridge/spring kit looks like it would fit my needs.

    I saw this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/Damper-Kit-Steel...item20b5c80810

    Probably the same thing... I'd look around for Englund Air Cartridges too. They were supposed to be pretty hot at the time.

    What parts are bad on your Judy? I just rebuilt my '96 Judy xc and the only thing that I did was refill cartridge with new oil. Works real well. My elastomers are in good shape but I ended up ordering some Wings-suspension springs to replace the old elastomers. They were $35 on the wings-suspension website. I should be getting them this week and I can post before and after results.

    If the topout and bottomout bumpers are still intact you'll be okay. It's a choice between having a fork that goes "thud, thud" and doesn't suck up bumps or one that bounces a little afterwards. Mostly we're talking forks with 2" of travel or less so pogo action is fairly limited.
