For jobs like this, JB Weld is your best friend. Just make sure to use the slow set stuff (red and black lettering on white tubes) since it's considerably stronger than the quick set stuff.Dale1K said:On mine, the sliding cylinder had developed a crack at the end where the mount is. I found this by pumping up the shock and dunking it in a bucket of water. The air leak was obvious. Fortunately the crack is at the end of the cylinder where it is not a working surface (it never slides into the upper body in that area).
