Without the elastomers and in the damped judys. You could always run one leg with the elastomers and one leg with the springs. I did this on some old RSTs and it worked wonders. :twisted:

I have a set of 95 Judys XC , and they have elastomers in each leg and a cartridge in the left leg .

There is same number of elastomeres in each leg , so you could replace them both with your springs and leave the cartridge .

All Judys ran an oil damped cart.

The manitou 3s were elastomer only. Run the forks with these and you'd have yourself a nice pogo stick :D

If you're talking manitou 3 (not sure on the rest) you'd have to run one leg spring and one leg elastomers. Not sure how well it'd work.

Didn't read the packaging properly, saw Judy in top left hand corner and thought they were for Judys. :oops:
