Hello - I just rebuilt the front end and installed new wheel and neck bearings on my 69 Triumph Tr6. Before the rebuild, the front end was very soft and chattered as I applied the brake. Took it for a ride today after completion and has the same issues! What am I missing? New springs, bushings and oil seals. Bushings were nice and snug when installed,,, but when riding or pushing down the forks ,,,feels like there is still play. What could I be missing? Im 99% sure everything was put in correctly.

Slider is a lower, moving steel part of front fork not a plastic sleeve residing inside a slider between bushes.
A problem with a slider is you can machine them inside, because you are getting a cone shape after machining.
So, I'm afraid only possibility is to make a new one.

I always used plastic dumper sleeves, so now nothing about alloy sleeves, but believe they should have the same role in helping with damping of a fork.
