Hey guys, greetings from Argentina! Long time lurker here and coming out of the blue to appeal to HK members' wisdom. A friend brought me his trusty shock after it stopped being trusty and started leaking oil through the rebound dial at an alarming rate.

I disassembled it and found the o-ring on the rebound shaft to be in such a bad shape I wasn't even able to accurately measure it.

I went to the local hydraulic supplies shop only to find just metric o-rings. Tried with a 2x1 and a 2x2. The 2x1 was too small to seal the shaft against the shock body and the 2x2 didn't even fit. Before I spill oil all over my man cave o ce again, I decided to check online to see if anyone had listed the dimensions for each the o-rings this shock uses, to no avail.

I was wondering if anyone here has had experience with this shock and in that case if the measurements for that little o-ring are known.

Thanks a lot for keeping this place alive. I have learned so much about suspension and other technical stuff I can't even think how to give something back to this amazing community.

Welcome SlimShady.
I'm not the right guy to answer this though. When you wanna find your inner roadie, or DIY something, I'll be more useful.
Go say hi in the new members thread.

Magura :)

Glad to find you here! Unfortunately the O-ring is so bashed I haven't been able to get any accurate measurements. I'll grab a picture tomorrow next to something usable as a parameter.
