Is that the only reason for some USD's having a tendency to blow oil seals, I thought it was something a little more inherent to the design than dust/dirt/chip damage (ie oil always sitting above seals)?

Another pro for conventionals is the ability to use fork braces.

Parts availability for our 5060's though...
