Popped into the LBS this arvi to cause some trouble and came away with a free shagged pair of Judys.. Nice work.. :lol:

Thing is, I've got no idea how to rebuild them :roll:

The Elastomers are well and truly buggered and need replacing [hence the giveaway], but I can't get all of them out. How do I free the stansion from the lower legs? I've undone the bolts at the base of the legs and removed the caps, but they won't come apart.. Do they need soaking in something to free them up? I've no idea what condition the catridge is in inside, how do I get at it? I thought the whole lot came apart? The legs are in great shape with only a few minor scratches..

I know they're not worth much, but thought it would be good to learn how to rebuild a pair.. Who knows, they might even work afterwards :wink:

Bewdy! Cheers mate, that's perfecto!

Followed the instructions..

Both stacks were entriely perished, but it seems asides from a little wear on the neutral shaft, the insides are okay. Stansions look awesome! Not sure I'll go the elastomer stack route tho, need to find some coil springs and perhaps replace the oil damper with an Englund unit.. 8)

One question, should I be able to see thru both stansions? There seems to be a plastic stopper inside, half way up/down the non-dampened leg.. :?
