BTW. was that from errosion or what? i don't know n e thing about forks, so could you educate me? lol i don't even know where those things came from.
It was from a year of hard riding and many miles. I serviced them last Fall too.
The seals are at the top of the sliders, (lower tubes). The stanchion tubes, (uppers tubes), go into them. Seals in oil and seals out dirt, water etc.
The center part of the seals, (upper left and lower right in pic), were blown apart from the outer part of the seal. There should only be two pieces there.
They are from Judy XC forks. Not nearly top-of-the-line but I wouldn't have expected this.
If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough...
