One of mine seems to be fucked and don’t want to keep nitrogen out of the oil no matter the o-ring installed or wear ring on the ifp (installed a slightly thicker metric o-ring to help seal, no dice).

Any of the other mfg resi’s cross over? Need to get one asap

I have some small 6” long cans that you could try

What the fuck, over? I never had issues with those fucking shocks. Maybe they started dripping because of the 70’s porn they were wrapped in?

Check the o ring grooves for wear/scratches. Also check the cylinder for the same.
Put a 1/4-20 bolt in your drill press, thread on the IFP, turn it on and use some scotch Brite to clean up the O ring groove on the piston, and use a scotch brite ball or make an attachment to hone the resi with. That works most of the time unless the part has a really deep scar in it

There ain’t a scratch in them. You can feel the difference when you put the ifp in. Nice and snug then loosens up 1/4 the way in. Feels like they got 300k miles on them. I’ll have to throw my bore gauge on them and take pics when I change them with Ryan’s resi’s. Maybe they need “hone marks”?
