Hello,

I am trying to service/repair an fox talas 36 2007 RC2 and as such, i was searching for damper seal service kits but the more i search the more confused i get since the code seems to be the same for the parts and allot of sellers donĀ“t specifies the year. So i was wondering if any of you could give me a guiding light.

Thanks and good riding's!!

Hello Miemec,

Our resident Fox specialist is on a hiatus, so you'll have to put up with a bit lower level advice.

My take would be to open it up, and simply find the industrial standard parts, which most of the seals are, and buy the external seals as a spare.
If I'm not mistaken, even the external seals are industrial parts in fact. It's just a matter of searching a bit.
Not only will that give you the parts at a fraction of the cost, but you'll get a bag of 10 mostly.

Given it's a Fox, with very low service intervals, this is a rather attractive approach.

Magura :)

Hello Magura,

Thank you very much, and if this is lower level advise I might say it is pretty good advice!
On another note does this method works as well on dhx air shocks? for o-rings, I am thinking of doing a
revamp on my shock but it seems that not allot of information is available on the dhx.

Thanks MIEMEC

I would sure think so.

Most of what you find inside suspensions, are basic industrial parts. Those guys didn't invent hydraulic seals, they just use the most commonly available, and cheapest, technology they can find.
