Dumb question, but I have to ask.

Just ordered a fox RC4. Shock came, but is it suppose to come with spacers at the eye? I can take the one off my old RP23, but I thought they supply the spacer too?

Nope, just the shock. There are so many different types of eyelet spacers/adaptors that they can't supply all of them at once. Some bikes use bolt-through axles through the shock, some use two-peice adaptors, and so on. You have to re-use the ones from your old shock, or buy new ones from fox. In some cases, you can only get these from your bike manufacturer, as they may choose non-standard hardware to make it work (like foes did with fox shocks). If you have any questions as to what you need, again the bike manufacturer is the best resource.
