Yeah, there is a hole on the metal spring seat for compression. I just replaced the seals on my Gen 3 and used the Traxxion Dynamics kit to do it.



You must not have seen the holes farther down in the fork tube or something. :dontknow: I will say though, that it kind of a PITA to use this tool because the holes are fairly down the spring seat and you'll need to have someone compress the spring while you pull up on the fork cap to slide the clip in. But it is doable.

Yeah, I'm sure. I just got done using that kit on my '09 forks last month. There should be 2 holes in the sleeve about 2-3" down from the cap.
