They would charge for the labor to replace the fork but I asked them if I could just take it and install it myself and they were fine with it. I'll post another update when the fork comes in. I was talking about this with a friend and he brought up a good point - it's possible SRAM has a stock of new old forks specifically for this type of thing. Idk if that's true but I'll find out soon I guess!
That is great news.

I’d be interested to know what fork will arrive. Especially since it is a 1-1/8” steerer with rim brakes.

You might consider having the shop install it. It helps the shop and it is an unknown replacement for a 20 year old fork. Might be wise to let them tackle the issues.
