Cylinders and Springs?

Thanks for the help on my thread about revalving, I sent my shocks out to Hygear today. Anways I have two questions, the first is that I have heard different things about honing cyclinders or about cleaning them with a scotchbrite pad. So I'll add some pictures of my cyclinders and If anyone could give their opinion on what to do that would be great. Secondly I am going to swap out my rear springs and am not sure how to remove the "block" on the end to get them off, I'm not really sure what the part is called so I will post it in the third picture and if anyone can tell me a good way to get it off that would be great.

A standard stone hone with plenty of oil! Then round off the port edges with sand paper!

Or a ball hone will work nice to. They radius the ports at the same time you hone the cylinder. As far as the "pivot idler arm" just take the 2 bolts out and jam a wedge in the slot to open it up a little. A straight screwdriver will work. It looks like you already have it marked. There should be factory marks on there already but it doesn't hurt to mark it yourself to make sure it goes back on the same way.

That is the TSL arm and after you remove the bolt, a two leg gear/bearing puller will get that right off.

I know cylinders are expensive so I'm a little weary of doing it myself, anyone have an idea of how much a dealer would charge to hone them?

Like $5! It is really a 1 min job! DO NOT use a ball hone! They are too agressive and can egg out a cyl! That is straight from Krouse at US Chrome!
