I have an '03 FSR-XC stumpy with a Fox Float rear shock.
I replaced the lower rear bushing and reducer last year in June (about 800 miles), and now it needs repalcing yet again. So I got to thinking....
You know how the reducers are spit in the middle of the shock? I wonder if a lot of this wear is because the split in the middle is creating a place to flex and accellerate wear.
I heard that there is a reducer for the Intense Tracer that has a solid piece that goes from one side to the other inside the dogbone with no split in the midde. Basically, like a long tube (throught the shock eye) with two rings on each side (to keep the shock centered in the dogbone).
Is there something like this out there for the Stumpy?
Is anybody else having really fast bushing wear like this? I'm installing it with no lube, as the shop told me to do (the bushing is pre-dry lubed). I guess it isn't that much of a PITA to change out the bushing, it just seems to wear pretty fast.
