Dude, seriously? Please type properly, this isn't a text message on your phone, nor are we your "homies".

Yes, Enduro seals are worth it. They're much better than the stock seals, and will actually keep the oil in the fork, and the dirt out of it.

Just got them for my Revelation. Better than the leaky stock ones. Will probably use them for my Fox 36's also at the next oil change.

They seem to hold up ok. Ive installed them in 6 forks, and out of those, 2 people blew them, but it was from pretty abusive riding.

Very abusive use of commas.

I had some, now i don't. When i bottomed out the fork they would go up over the crown and force dirt under them, which would ride along inside the wiper seals until i pulled apart the fork. One of the oil seals blew, too. They seem to work out great for a lot of people, and the enduro guys are here on the board and pretty awesome, but i'd say the rockshox seals are a better design.

I realize you mentioned they would be going on a Fox fork but at least for my Rock Shox Pike, they weren't that great. Installation wasn't too bad and the product quality seemed good but they let a good amount of oil past them every time I rode. I wasn't really a fan of that.

Sounds like you may have installed the oil seals upside down.

I had the same thing on my Lyric.... after posting here with my problem, and being told to pry off the dust seals to see that the oil seals were in correctly, Chris (from Enduro Fork Seals) got on board and got a different version of their 35mm seals out to me immediately. I wasn't happy originally, but I'd say they stood behind their product and the new seals did their job. I am also running enduros on my fox 32 and my buddy is using them on his fox 36 and I probably will run them on my domain when the time comes...

yes worth it

Once broken in, the newest version of the Enduro seal kit is smoother and better than the stock OE seals on my Lyrik. I have had them in the Pike in the past, as well as Fox forx. They work better than the Fox 32mm seals ever did.

Hey guys, I noticed that for the RockShox enduro kits, they do not come with the foam rings. Do the enduro kits not need foam rings, or are you supposed to reuse the original foam rings?
