I've tried Synergy seals, which don't use the nylon scrapers, but didn't find any improvement.
Now that the SKF fork seals make annual fork seal replacement unnecessary, I'd love to find a shock seal that lasted a couple of years, too.
Has anyone tried the Race Tech seal and bushing set?
Are you using a bullet to install the seal, or just eyeballing it? Seems odd, are you just replacing the oil seal and not the dust seal at the same time? Whats the condition of the bushing?
