    i need to fix up my air sleeve on my spot...

    can i leave half of it mounted in the frame? i do not have a vice to hold it in. Would I ruin the bushings? What do you think?

    P.S. Does the fork still have reliability issues still?

    What is your question, exactly? What are you "fixing up?"

    That would be best, you can use a bit of wire or zip tie to hold ya rockers up!

    I use my Park Tool stand clamp for vice duties, sorta became my trick on the road at the races

    chur.

    You mean to unscrew the air sleeve? You could, it would be easier to put a screwdriver through the eyelet.
