Both stanchions are pretty much the same, and it was that corrosion that was stopping it coming out...
I've attacked it gently with 1500 wet+dry but i think it's still going to need some work. I'm not uptight on whether they work perfectly, I'll just be happy to have rebuilt them successfully myself.. but I'm already preparing myself for it to be the long-haul..
Was thinking about the kronos spring upgrade both sides, but would that then require me to fill them with oil? or is it designed to be run 'dry' so to speak.. ?
Check the bushings as best you can as they might have had a bad time, but clean them and slap plenty of fork grease on them. I used a bit of polish one the top surface had gone. Someone mentioned using some glue of some sort to fill in and under dimples.
Run them dry (well fork grease). or drop some 5 to 10cc of oil in the bottom of each if you want. Rekiborter will tell you how he runs his, Rockshox converted to that later on in 1998.
