I dropped my bike off at the race shop and the seals came right out then the new seals went back in and I drove it home. No problem... I'm being sarcastic of coarse. I do a lot of work on all my rides but after reading the book on the seal replacement I did opt. for letting my local race shop do the work. It looks like a pain in the butt. I'm sure you've got it done by now. If not, you'll get it done soon. Good luck.

Looks like Dan Kyle in California would be the closest professional to give your forks a work over....

Probably worth changing the fork oil again in a week or two to make sure all the crap (that is a technical term) is flushed out.
