Does anyone know where you can get the spacers that go over the bushing for the fifth element coil shock? They are the peices that look like a washer but wider, approx. 1/4" wide. I seemed to have lost the 2 that go on either side of the front bushing (front an back are the same). I live in Edmonton, Alberta and neither United Cycle or RVC has them. Would I have to order them from Progressive Susp.??

Yeah, these are usually items that aren't available from any other source but the bike company that has the shock on their bike and the shock company. If I remember correctly, the 5th uses the same I.D. bushing spacers as Fox and Cane Creek. The head and tail width of these three shocks is the same also. I have swapped bushing spacers between these shocks for different experiments, so you can probably use spacers from any of these 3 companies. However, if you've got to order them anyway, I'd go with SC or Progressive for guaranteed results.

Thanks, maybe I'll just order from Progressive!
