rebuilt shocks....

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I've just cleaned out my shocks and rebuilt them. This is my first time doing this and it went well.

My question is if i don't have any lubricant for the shaft or seals; will it do any damage if it's dry?
I've got them all clean and dry right now awaiting fluid.

A drop of shock fluid on the seals and on the shock shaft will work as well to lube them while assembling.

no damage from leaving them dry while you wait on your oil. and like it says above use the oil you will run in your shocks as lube for the o rings.
Dirt off-road is fun but carpet is where the REAL racing is.
