Well my first Judy XC refurb has hit it's first obstacle. The dummy damper was stuck so following advice I tapped it gently using a piece of wood through the stanchion and a hammer. Gently became a bit more aggressive as the thing refused to budge but then sure enough out shot the damper and the piece of wood. Unsurpisingly the hammer head did not follow the wood through the stanchion but instead crashed down on the end of it, bending part of it over and splitting the metal :oops:

Now I've started I don't want to give up so if anyone has a spare Judy stanchion I'd be eternally grateful.

Inner is the stanchion, outer is just called a lower leg.

I'm looking to thin the herd and parts stash and have a couple of stanchions spare. I say spare, is anything spare in this game? I could be persuaded to part with them, was keeping them just in case I need them one day, but I'm now down to 1 set of fsx and one set of xc, neither if which are on bikes so are they spares enough in their own right?

Convince me to part with them, shouldn't take much persuading. No idea on price though.
