Hey yall!

So it got really cold and cracked my fork seals I believe. I can't think of any way else it could have happened.

So my question is, where can I buy them and how much $$?

Also where can I by the compression tool to change them?

Thanks!
Jake

AllbBalls fork seals http://www.allballsracing.com/56-142.html

I use a old micrometer and some straps,running through the axle hole, to compress the spring.

Be sure to anneal your copper crush washers if you don't replace them

Here's the Fork Spring Compressor Kit from Traxxion.

What copper washers are you guys talking about? I don't recall there being any copper washers that came off when changing the fork seals.
