Arrow CRC Durashock Build Problems

I'm trying to convert a couple of old AE shocks to durashocks with the body and derlin insert conversion kit. Using the AE internals in the CRC body everything fits fine apart from the o-ring, its just too thick to allow the derlin insert to fully screw in to the shock body.

Is it just a case of the o-ring has swollen in size due to the shock oil or do i really need to use the CRC rebuild kit parts instead of the AE parts? Advice please...

I would say it was a swelled o-ring

Thanks Jeff, i contacted CRC as well and they replied with a different build order when using AE internals. The instruction sheet that comes with the conversion shows pretty much the same parts as AE use so you would think the build was the same. Instead to build the shock with AE internals you only use the small washer after the foam cup before the o-ring or it wont fit, what i've found... Thanks to CRC, top customer service.
