    i'm sure you've found an answer by now, but i recently picked up mtnbiker4life's DU bushing tool and it works great. he also makes a set of seal/wiper tools for pretty much every size fork out there.

    Buy the Wheels Manufacturing press tools for DU bushings and a 1/2 ton arbor from Harbor Freight. I've used these for a few hundred shocks in the past year without a single problem.

    The RWC tools work well as do the RockShox wiper tools. I used them every day.

    When I installed mine, I had some old PVC pipe laying around that did the trick. It doesn't take a lot of force to install the seals and if you do need some force, use a mallet and tap them in. Free tools are always good.
    I always wanted a Wookie, but I found out they weren't real.
