    pretty sure a gl wont work due to the tpc stuff but i oculd be wrong. on marz forks and rock sucks forks im pretty sure you just find the right top cap, take out the spring, add a splash of oil and call it good.

    I did an air spring mod to one side of a junior t using a marzo top cap. Saved some weight I guess, but it never felt as plush. I put in the spring and added a spacer after a while so it was primarily a coil fork but I could tune it a bit more for different kinds of riding.

    don't waste your time. Just sell me your GL and buy an Air fork.
