    Have you been to the RS website to download the rebuild instructions? If you have the instructions the next step is to dive in!

    EDIT: The spring side has nothing to do with the damper side. You can change the spring in minutes. There's a little oil (35cc I think) in there to lube that side of the forks.

    For replacing the spring you won't need to remove the lowers, so unless you want to change the fluid in the damper you are only dealing with the bath oil on the spring side.

    Servicing the the damper side is a lot of fun. Just make sure you do it someplace where you don't mind having oil shoot out. The thing can be like a super soaker, and the first time I did it the thing really hosed me with oil. I laughed my ass off when it happened.
