Have you tried the LBS? They likely work directly with sram.

A lot of LBS around here have direct ties(and discounts) from Sram and the others.

Maybe they want support to go through the LBS's. Not the only company to do that.

ugh. My LBS, well they are a good shop, very friendly people and knowledgable but i cant stand how htey dont service suspension forks. He said it isnt worth their while and they seem to deal more with road bikes, but hey they let me use their truing stand and tensiometer so i like them. The only other place is philbricks they have rather high labor fees. Can you help me out at all? My SID is leaking air on the negative side, will the replacement of the O rings solve this?

Sounds like your SOL then. Gonna have to try to go through an LBS. Either that or tear the fork down and try and fix it yourself with help of people online.

Good idea. Or go to your lbs, since you are willing to ship it, and get them, who probably have a relationship with SRAM, and they can send it for you.

Which is likely how SRAM wants it anyways.

Well im trying to avoid shipping it, I just want some sort of confirmation that the O ring is indeed what must be replaced.

You'll probably get better service from Hippie Tech than sending it back to RS/Sram.
