    Hi Guys,

    I have a 5th Element Air shock and I'm getting quite a bit of play between the top bushing and the axle that goes through it. It makes a clunking sound when you lift up and down on the seat. Any idea where I can get a replacement mount kit? I've looked all over the Internet and all I can find is TF Tuned Shocks http://www.tftunedshox.com/progressive/springythings.htm and Neezy http://www.neezy.com.au/progressive.htm.

    There's no way I'm paying $30-40 plus shipping for a couple of bucks worth of stainless steel.

    Also, does anyone know if the 5th Element Air is compatible with any other air shock mounting hardware?

    Thanks a lot.

    No, it isn't compatible with anything else...
