    Tips for preventing '04 Stumpy lower shock mount slop?

    So last time I installed new bushings, but some locktite on the thread, waited 24 hours, and still only got about 20 hours of riding before the lower shock bushings began to get sloppy again.

    Is there anything I can do to prevent this?

    Thanks guys

    Installing a "mudflap" to keep mud and dust off the shock and bearings should increase their life.

    The fender, as fsrxc had mentioned, is the best option. However, BETD makes some kick-ass after market reducer bushings which last A LOT longer than the stock ones that Fox uses!
