SHOCK BODY HOLDING TOOL

DAMPING ROD HOLDING TOOL

Some Damping Rods are difficult to remove because they spin. Making a special tool for each model can be a pain. This simple tool is a tapered aluminum rod. With a tap of a hammer, the taper wedges into the ID of most Damping Rods. You may be surprised with the holding power! Many Forks come apart easily, but this inexpensive tool is great to have when you need it.
