Rock Shox would have used an off the shelf component for the bushings and seals, does anyone have an old fork to strip down or a kit they could send me, i promise i'd send them back, and i could probably track down the offending items.

PS, a long travel kit to borrow would be cool so i could copy the travel upgrade piece as well.

I have two sets and only plan to use one so could send one to you (probably the SL/Ti's).

The seal puller is a two part sleave that slide over the stanchion/leg and is then clamped before being unwound using headset spanners to force the leg off the stanchion. It's decribed on page 4 of this document:
