Yep, Jim has.

But I do have a question. There was a rubber O-ring around the rear shock. That is what you used to see how much the shock was sagging (getting compressed). The guideline was that static compression just from body weight was about 25% of the travel.  That rubber ring is gone from Lynn's bike.  Do I need to get it replaced?  Does it serve any other function, such as cleaning the piston before the dir would get dragged into the seals?

doesnt do anything except set sag. Also keep in mind every person is different and most shocks valving is not correct for most people. For true nirvanna PUSH industries can do some really good things for shock tuning.
