|15||0.15||1||Face shim against LSC portion of piston (inner holes)|
|17.8||0.25||1||Second LSC shim|
|12||0.25||3||Clamp shims for LSC - total stack height on LSC components needs to be somewhere around 1.15mm|

- There are two versions of the FIT4 damper. This version is the later (2020+ version) which uses an 8mm damper shaft. Earlier versions used a 10mm damper shaft.

Damper rebuild instructions
Warning!!! The Fox website has not been updated with instructions on the 2020+ FIT4 dampers for the F34 forks. The instructions you need to use are those for the 2016-2018 36mm F-S/P-Se FIT4 3pos w/Adj Damper Cartridge Rebuild
If I enter my serial number, it properly identifies the fork as having a FIT4 damper but then lists the "Service - 2017-2023 GRIP Damper Rebuild (32mm, 34mm, and 36mm)" which is clearly not right.
To bleed the damper, you need to remove the compression adjust coupler from the top of the cartridge. It is held in place by an extremely small wire circlip which is a total PITA to get out. You need a very sharp pick to get it out.
Mine went flying on removal and I could not find it so I had to make a replacement. I was able to find a suitable sized spring and cut off a portion of the first spring coil to use as a replacement circlip.
