    yes, the fork will need to come apart. trust me, don't try it any other way until you know how they fit together.

    the bolts in the bottom of the fork legs may stick and not want to come out of the fork tubes - after you pull the springs, push a broom handle down the tubes to keep the piston from spinning when you remove the bolt. see my build thread for how to build a seal removal tool.
