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.
