    I think I'm missing a part....

    I was replacing seals and servicing my RP23 and had some parts laid out on my workbench; one of my cats jumped up there where I had everything sitting...heard at least one thing hit the floor. I looked around and found the valve cap to the RP23. Looked like that was it however when I got done putting the shock back on I think I'm missing something else.

    In the following picture is the top shock rocker bolt (on the far left) supposed to have a washer? I ask because number one I think it did and would, number two when I tighten the bolt the head ends up a bit into the rocker body instead of flush. I looked all over the floor and can't find a washer. Anyone?? Thanks!

    If you're referring to the long bolt, I think that's goes in only one way and I don't think that has a washer.

    This is what my husband's X-5 bolt looks like on one side. Let me know if this helps or if you need the photo of the other side.

    Upper shock bolts use no washer and it was common a few years ago at least that the bolt would stick out the left side 1mm or so.
