  3. Apply a small amount of suspension fork oil to the new oil seal and dust seal to lubricate them.
  4. Place the oil seal driver tool over the oil seal and gently tap it into place using a rubber mallet. Make sure the seal is seated evenly and securely.
  5. Repeat the same process for the dust seal, ensuring it is properly aligned and seated.
  6. Once both seals are installed, wipe off any excess oil or grease from the fork stanchions.
  7. Reassemble the front fork according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
