Suspension fork rebound elastomers?
I'm trying to firm up a 2002 Manitou Mars fork.
I contacted suspensionforkparts.com and he said he can provide a firmer suspension elastomer, which should be all I need (the fork uses a small two-inch elastomer on top of a 5 7/8" coil spring)
But he said I would also need rebound elastomers.
This is a virtually new fork and the elastomers are all in like new condition. Why would I need new rebound elastomers, too?
Is he just trying to up-sale or do i really need to replace the rebound elastomers with the compression elastomer?
When you could still get firm "ride kits" from Manitou, they didn't come with rebound elastomers...
