This is an 07 Rock Shox Revelation. It has around 3 seasons of use on it. I noticed a crack in the arch where it meets the lowers. I'm not sure if its ok to still use or if I need to do something. Is it even worth buying lowers for? I just had new seals put in it so if I do fix it I won't need anything else.

The black line above the crack is there to show how long the crack is.

No, that's not ok. The crack will continue to grow, and the arch will fail.

I took the fork off my bike and sanded down the paint around the crack and its even bigger than it looked before. Its cracked the entire way though and there was cracks in the finish the entire way across.
