The fluro was a waste of money - it has "gone" already.

ordered one from Whyte today!

Edit - the fluro one is still working fine after 50 miles of hammering

it was the h link causing the play, apologies to fluro!!!!

Just posted in Fotorats JW2 thread that I've bought an IKO PB10. My last one had become very noisey but had a groove worn around it. I'll keep it properly greased this time. It was £18 from BRT bearings. They have a few shops including in Chorley.

Try Wooburn to Flackwell pulling two three yearolds in a trailer. I did.

Fluro Update - have been using it 2 times a day since September (5miles per day) on the dog walk - and the fluro is still holding up like new - I have yet to take it into the hills for a 20mile loop though!

I replaced the usual suspects one at a time on my JW4. The spherical bearing first, less play but no quieter. Then the shock mounting hardware, much better but hardly silent. The shock bushes, considerably better. I now just have he intrinsic noise of the X Fusion shocks, which are much noisier than the Fox shocks on my PRST4.
I opened the shocks a while ago and replaced the oil which just wasn't providing enough damping. The damping is good now. I think the noise just comes from a top out knock on the X Fusion.
