Fox Shox Polymer DU Bushing Reducer Kit

New Polymer DU Mounting hardware from Fox has lower friction and helps to deliver better small bump compliance than the previous DU bushings. In addition the polymer mounting bushings have better longevity and are easier to install.

  • Lower friction for Increased Small Bump Compliance
  • Increased Longevity
  • Easier to Install
  • Please Note: This bushing reducer kit is enough to replace the bushings on one eyelet of your rear shock; if replaceing the bushings on both eyelets you need to purchase a quantity of 2 kits. Also note that many bikes use different sized bushings for each eyelet, so please verify which size you need before ordering.

    little work to install for retrofit (old aluminum bushings)
    there is a reducer bushing in the shock that needs to come out. if u do not have the tool to pull bushings a 10mm and 17mmish socket and a good bench vice can press it out.

    If u were going to just use aluminum it is a good idea to press it out to replace bushing reducer anyway, so might as well go new style so never have to do again.

    old style I had to grease every 10 rides, new no grease! pretty much maint free. way more surface area, when it does eventually wear down, next one will be a snap to install, a big improvement.

    There were no directions on how to choose the correct size. Now I know, that the size to order is the overall width of both bushings mounted in the shock. So if the frame has an opening of 40mm that the shock needs to mount in, then you'd need to order a bushing set for 40mm. I was led to believe that I should order based on the length of one side. I ended up determining that I could NOT use the polymer bushings after all, and had to order aluminum ones, in order to achieve the proper mounted width.

      Comments about Fox Racing Shox Fox Shox Polymer DU Bushing Reducer Kit:

      I've never liked the old style DU design from Fox. Use a digital vernier caliper and measure the old bushings and frame tolerance to ensure the correct size. I had my LBS remove the old bushings from the shock body, other than that, the new design is hand press fit and DIY servicable from then on. I found the new bushings made it easier to re-install the shock as well. Primo!

            Twice during the last year the upper steel DU bushing on my Fox 23 rear shock developed play noticeable when lifting up the bike by the seat. This replacement should last much longer than the steel DU bushing. Best of all, it is super easy to replace once you have the steel bushing removed. The video instructions on the page below are very helpful.

                    Call Fox to get correct kit. Ease of install and removal and small bump reaction improved. Eliminated play in the lower mount. Only difficulty was tight fit of black aluminum pieces. Good product overall.
