I got them out, greased where they mount and with some extra grunting they finally went in.  So much for the simple jobs lol

Yes, what else could I mean which has two holes and lube is sometimes required?

This reminds me that I need to do mine. Sunday morning job I think.

I have a Fox Float RP23 BV and Float RLC's, can anyone point me in the right direction as to what replacement foam rings I 'may need' and crush washers and anything else. May end up sending them off yet, but will need the bits for future services.
Cheers!

I (well Si_ozzy did while I watched) changed mine the other day. In the end didn't change them because the originals were still imaculate. The kit was brought from here..

Amazing service. I ordered about 3 o'clock and they turned up next day, on their free delivery option. You'll need a couple of the small tubes of the fluid packs cos one just isn't enough.

EDIT : I think this could be the first piece of helpful bike advice I have ever written on this site Undecided

For a start there are no foam rings or crush washers in a float shock, all you need is a seal kit:

For the Float RLC use the link that winnie put above to get the right wiper seals and foam rings, you dont really need to buy new crush washers, ive reused mine loads.

Its worth while buying a bottle of float fluid, i have as i regularly service my forks, if this is the first service your five is getting from new then its long overdue!

Yeah I know it's long over due, but I'm not good with such things and they're too pricy for me to want to 'try and see what happens'

Been meaning to get onto it for a looong time.

For the rear shock, I don't ever plan on taking it apart, I understand it's not for a noob like me, so worth sending that off?

Edit: Pro pedals been dead for a loong while, so guessing for that alone I'm far better off sending it off
