    Where can I get new shock mount bushings and spring for the 5th element shock on my Intense Uzzi SLX?

    Do you mean DU bushings or a mounting hardware kit?
    I just did this so I can probably help.
    For DU bushings 16mm Marzocchi and Fox will work. CTS makes some and you should be able to get them from any shop.

    For mounting hardware i've been using Marzocchi Roco hardware on my Bullit for a season now without issue. Fox should fit too.

    Manitou Swinger springs will fit the 5th.

    Hope this helps..

    Pretty sure I just need the DU bushings. I'm not swapping shocks or frames so the mounting hardware is already there.

    What's the best way at getting the old DU bushings out and the new in without messing them up?

    The best way would be to buy the tool.

    Another way is to find a socket that is the same size as the bushing, then put a larger socket on the other side, and then use a vice to push the socket into the eyelet and it will push the bushing out into the larger socket. Then you can use the vice to press in the new bushing, but be careful not to mess it up.
