Another weird one.

I took my forks off last night to flush and clean them. Well I took the cap and spring off and drained the oil and turned it upside down and starting pumping the damping rod to get the rest of the oil out and a flat washer fell out. (looks like the one under the seal)
So I took the other down and did the same procedure and no washer fell.
what is the deal? did it somehow get past that retainer collar thing?

sounds like a preload washer was in the one fork and not the other or it's still hung up in there. They go under the spring.

By the way....You can't get all of the oil out just by simply pumping them...u have to take them apart.
