Just do stock seals and parts.

I bought the 4 parts that are right around the seals in the diagram, I can post them later..

Really all you should need is the seals though..

Re: Fork Oil Replacement / Seals

You dont have to change the seals to flush the fork.... Flushing the fork is literally like an hour job, start to finish.

When you want to win, when there is no substitute for the best, when you don't want to feel the sting of second place, you really only have one place to turn.

Yep.

Unless your seals are busted there is really no need to change em.
