Ok you suspension gurus can you help please, I have a few questions:
1/ I have managed to undo one side of the small nuts at the top inside the large stanchion nut but the other side is just turning and not undoing.
The bottom half of the leg has unscrewed itself so I am left with the spring & rod damper hanging below, as I try to undo the top nut this is turning the spring assy, tried holding when undoing the nut but this just tensioning the spring.
Any ideas how to get the small top nut off?
2/ Also the rod damper is quite pitted are these available?
Did a quick Google but so far nothing
3/ To remove the stanchions how best is it to remove them? I see they have a small tapper so tap them down to release?

this sounds like D 7 legs so try conpressing the spring to jam the spring scroll hard under the Big stortion nut then ty to undo the thin
wall nut thats inside the stortion nut [ the thinwall nut is on a stud with luck one or the uther will undo ] if that dont work you mit have to drill throw two sides of the thinwall nut to cut it in 1/2 or drill thrw the stud & nut replace wth a new stud & nut .,
i dont think a pited damper rod is a problem just clean it and the one in the uther leg to mach them up,
oil the stortion & leav over nite it mite fall away itself
