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.

    After 2 yrs of modest riding on my Tallboy C and Fox RP2, the lower DU was well past done, evidenced by a pronounced creak of metal on metal and a lot of vertical play. Most reviews said these had less friction than DU (lubricant-coated-metal) bushings so I was cautiously optimistic that it would improve small bump compliance. Well I have to say these have improved everything, small bump, large bump, and most of all rebound. The simple rebound damping on my RP2 is pretty underwhelming, and either bucks you at slow speeds or doesn't recover fast enough at high speeds, usually both, somehow these bushings have helped in both departments. They have also been silent since day 1 and were easy to install. I did spray some dry teflon lube (Remington drylube) on the inner surface just to help them settle in.

    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:

    If it's time to replace your DU bushing I would seriously consider this upgrade.

    It's a pretty straight forward upgrade and goes a lot easier if you have the tool to press out the old bushings which is why I say "difficult to install".

    But you only need to press them out once - going forward you won't need to worry about it again!

    If you don't have the tool you *can* use a 6mm or 8mm hex wrench to press it out or just pay your LBS a small fee to have them press it out. If you're lucky they may not charge you anything since it only takes about 5 minutes.

    If your stock DU bushings are good then I would recommend just staying with them until they need replacing.

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

      These bushings work on the Cane Creen DBInline Shocks. BUT, I had to press out the brass insert before they would fit. Its not incredibly easy if you dont have the right tool but I was able to get them out with a correct diameter socket and c-clamp.

      These are cheaper and easy to get than the Cane Creek bushings, so I prefer to use them!

          Oddly when you select the correct SKU the description says Aluminium and the part # matches Fox's part # for the Aluminum reducers but I received Polymer... no biggie, easy to install and so far working great!

            These bushings replace the normal DU bushings in a rear shock. The bushings can be installed by hand (albeit with a lot of force). The reducer seemed to be a bit smaller than it should be and I needed to ream the reducer to fit the 8mm hardware for the bike. I have been using the bushings for a few weeks now and some seriously hard riding. The system works well. Very good shock response and silent operation.

                  Much better then the DU Bushings. The real test will be on a Yeti ASR5 which goes through the DU bushings like crazy. These are suppose to be more durable but time will tell. Hopefully the price will come down on these I prefer them over the DU bushings for their ease of removal and installation but they are about 10x the price of the standard bushings.

                    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!
