Yeh a rebuild every now and then is good. I did mine a couple of weeks ago and found some things I wouldn't have otherwise - eg a slightly bent hinge pin. No idea how long I've been running with that as I haven't broken an arm for a while... Also replaced all the plastic shock parts and worn ball nuts/studs with some fluorine coated items. While I was at it, I put in some foam washers like the offroaders do. Hopefully this will make the ball nuts/studs will last longer. Also replaced a set of shock shafts after the nitride coating wore through. I'm now itching to get this baby back onto the track!
