    How to make Fox bushings better

    Fox five piece bushings are quite nice. Unless the eyelet in the shock is too small. Then the fit is very tight and the pin does not want to rotate inside the bushings.

    I took a small strip of sanding paper, put it around the bushings and rotated them back and forth. End result is a very nice fit and smooth movement of the shock.

    Be careful not do remove too much material. Check the fit often. It is useful to install only one bushing at time for checking. Then it is easy to press it out with socket when you need to sand more.
