So this morning was spent stripping my mates WP shock, it's almost back together, just had a small bushing to arrive to go in the seal head, but everything is cleaned and ready. Will get it bled and gassed when I am up to do my forks next week. Here's a pic of the internals laid out for those interested to see the gubbins inside a shock.

Hypercoil spring on the LHS, to the right from top of the pic to the bottom is the rebound shim stack with piston and new piston bush at the bottom, to the right of that is the compression stack, to the right is the bumpstop, top-out spring, spring seat bearing, seal head... To the right of that is the shock body, pot of old oil, rod, new seals and old seals.
