    Could be wrong, but a JR T top crown may also work. If so, you'll have a much easier time finding what you want as the Drop Off Triple is an OEM fork with not as many produced as the JR T.

    ugh, try getting a new fork. it is way worth it. those are junk, no offense. I would just hang the ol' DropOffTriple on the wall and get a new fork.

    if you must keep it, try eBay or what Chris said.

    Dropoffs ' Juniors and super Tís have the same dimensions in the externals . So the crowns are the same.
    You know why dotís fail a lot also make frame failures . As they donít have acceptable damping power for their size and travel.

    Some solutions for making more damping.
    - Using a viscoser oil
    - Closing some of the oil flow holes at the damper rod bottom

    Also you can use better springs in them .They have a half length spring in the right leg .You can use springs in both legs . Or use longer springs .Or use a stiffer spring . To put more strain on the mechanicals than on the hydraulics .

    But the best solution is to buy a new fork.
