After I put them on (the long ones) my suspension is noticeably alot stiffer. I followed the book and things went smooth when putting them on so im not sure what to think.
It called for using lithium grease around the dust seals after cleaning, I was thinking maybe the savers our dragging on the little bit of grease that gets on the fork

Any thoughts.

You only want 3" of seal saver overlaping the fork tube. I just cut the long ones down into 3 pairs approx 4" overall length. You can cable tie them to the outside of the fork and change them once a month. Forks will should not feel any different. :)

Sounds like your fork alignment may be out of wack.
