So i wanted to go a little over on the front, and was gonna get a set of +4 - +8 tubes. When swapping, can I JUST swap the tubes and reuse the internals from the old set up (replacing the fork sealers and making a larger spacer) or do I need to get new internals as well.

Also, has anyone worked with these guys yet? Or heard anything about them? http://www.phantomkustom.com/ForkTubes.htm

Generally, you swap out the fork tube, reinstall the internals and add a spacer to make up for the extra length of the new tubes.

That's what I was gathering, but I thought I would make sure.

Anyone with experience using phantom kustoms? I would use a set of Franks, but (admittedly, without checking with him) I'm under the impression that I'd be waiting quite a while before I got my set. I'm not lookin for some crazy turn around. scratch and dents if it means I can get it in a week. I don't have patience haha.

There have been a few long fork tubes in the classifieds. I think it's worth checking out.

I ordered mine from Franks a month ago. Got them yesterday, 6 overs... and I'm up in Canada... wouldn't take to long if you are in the US...

make sure you tell them at Franks the exact shipping address... other than that it takes only about a week.
