Default Fork Oil/Seal/Bushing change @ 36000kms

After months of debating, I finaly decided to get my *** in gear and change the fork oil, seals, & bushings. Oil looked pretty bad but the bushings maybe not so much? Can someone comment on the intengrity of these bushings?... Im not sure if they needed to be changed or not, but after reading: "If you see any metal shining, bushings must be replaced".Regardless i had new ones so i did it anyhow, was more curious than anything...

Sorry I realized that pic of the bushings wasnt the best... I feel like there is minimal wear there, but honestly I have no idea. Makes me wonder how the pervious owner/s rode it

Was there any play in them?

I'd probably run those again, or at least save them for use in the future.

Yea I saved em. I also replaced as i figure i probably wont do this again for another 30,000kms or i get a new bike... whichever comes first. Did you figure out your fork oil level? I think i just put the recommended amount in and measured from top of fork and it was really close to the measurement. Id love to lend you all the tools i bought for this job haha ... it would be nice seeing someone else get some use out of them...
