a little trick with spacer, dont try to pull straight out, hose with wd then rotate it in gear with channel locks..

I thought the seal came out pretty easy, the technique is going back together , you'll also need a hand impact screwdriver or kiss them seal retaining bracket screws (elstrippo)

Stainless steel?,,

Has anyone check how the stainless are wearing? if stainless begins to corrode it will do so even faster that regular steel. I haven't had any issue with standard spacer . I did replace my spacer,seal combo at 14,000 mile but the could have gone double that. Present spacer/seal has about 19,000 miles.

I think alot has to do , if you ride in mud and then let it set up in that area.
