Front shock help

I'm having my fork lowers powder coated. So I took it all apart. I have 15k miles on the bike. My question is do I need to replace the fork seals and all the o rings per the service manual or is that written for the 50k service.

I know the 6mm bolts and crush washers have to be replaced. And I'm also gonna replace the quad ring seal.

You're in that far, replace em. A the others said, it's not worth risking a failure. Make sure you have something to drive them in with. A split piece of pvc pipe works well. (1.5" I think for your bike ). I just put monotubes on my '15 and my old pvc that I used on the 41mm forks wouldn't work. I ended up using the extension tube from my shop vac believe it or not, & it worked perfect.
