Yesterday I was finishing up replacing my fork seals and oil for the first time. Not too hard of job until it came time to compress the spring to thread the damping rod into the the fork bolt. After some playing around i rigged up my jack with some tie downs to help compress the spring. It worked alright for the first one and I got it back together fine, but on the second one one of my straps shifted and broke the white plastic spring spacer which I know have a replacement on the way from the dealership. My question for everyone is when that broke it slightly bent the rod attached to the fork bolt. I have a friend who works with metal who is going to attempt to get it straight again for me but do you think it is even worth trying? The replacement is not cheap so I would like to fix it but I dont know if it is something that will greatly affect my suspension. Any thoughts?
