Pulled this out the loft last week been using it to go to work.
Cant belive it still in good workin order apart from the shocks
as soon as get on it they just sink to the bottom think the
cartridge has gone.Think i might replace the shocks with some
project 2 forks as i think there is no way to fix the judys now

Jury's are one of the easiest forks to refurb.

Very nice bike to have stashed in the loft BTW... 8)

Rides a lot better now i stripped the judy xc and
the oil cartdridge is still intact

I think the Judy is a 96 not a 95. I believe the 96 has 63mm travel and the 95 has 50mm.
Yours looks longer than a 95 to me, but FluffyChicken is an expert on Judys and might well be able to tell you for sure.
It can often be impossible to refurbish an early Judy, but the worst problem is the damping cartridge, so if yours is ok that's a good start.
I don't think you can get either elastomers or steel springs in the UK, but these US sellers do them
