very old rockshox quadra fork

I have an old Schwinn Impact bike with Rockshox quadra fork. I got the top off and the elastomer out, but there seems to be a solid plug below that. No way to get the tubes apart. Is this a cheap throw-away fork that you can't clean and maintain?

Thank you! Exactly what I needed. Its a Quadra 93 model. Didn't even notice the retaining ring. Oldest forks I've worked on.

Suspension fork parts probably has replacement elastomers to refresh the "bounce". I had a very early Judy T2 circa 1995 that performed well IMO at the time.
