Retaining rings and dust seals you can usually reuse, Unless the rings are rusty and the dust boots are cracked (dryrot)....

You can always just bypass the small dust boots for vintage style organ boots, like a few here did (cheaper than OEM)....look nice too...

I think I got all my fork seals thru Superstore....

Looks like it is time. I caught this on my camera footage today when reviewing it. Is it really as bad as it sounds? I'm leaking pretty good, but I haven't rebuilt the forks. I've built 6 bikes from a frame and 5 engines from scratch, but these forks sound like hell.
