I have an 01 superlight with a pushed float R on it. Anyone know what the stroke is on the float? 2, 2 1/2? I might have to replace it. It's not holding air very well. Looks easy to rebuild the air chamber. Are parts easy to get for a fox shox that old? I tried a search and did not find much. The shock works great but It looses about 75% of the air in a day. It held air for weeks on end until this year. Thanks!

Last weekend I opened mine up to replace the air sleeve.
Turned out to be really easy. You don't need the bolt extractor they recommend, or the vise (or at least I didn't). The bolt pushed right out and my sleeve came off by hand.
The seal kit (runs like $8) has a larger o-ring for the older models.
I probably had it off and back on in under 15 min.
