    Don't use the dustcovers, and wrap the rubber o rings in place with electrical tape.

    Do you just use 1 oring per corner? Any why not use the dustcovers because the directions say just trim them?

    You shouldn't have to use any on the rears, I believe they come with a rubber tube (that is cut on half) that slips around the shock body, but on yours they maybe different. On mine used two of the bigger O rings on the bottom part, and one thin one on the top portion that is thicker, so three per shock.

    Oh, and the dust covers slam on the shock body, if you cut them enough not to, they are usless anyway, even GC told me they are a waste.
