    Takes the binding out of the spring. The binding in a smaller shock like this isn't as significant as folks on DH bikes but still it does help....like when taking a turn immediately after a hard drop. The whole rear action is nicely smoothed out

    In my case, it is a little more than that. Am running the enduro needle bearing kit on the lower eyelet with minimal preload on my 400lb spring which can create quite a bit of up/down movement on the spring. The bearing/collar helps keep everything in place. Before, after every few hard rides I have to adjust my lock ring as the spring moves out of place.

    Would be happy to get the Obtainium spacer+bearing kit but was too much of a hassle getting it shipped....thruster bearings used on those and the one here are just standard industrial stuff. Milling the collar was what took awhile...
