I assume you mean the shock absorber is leaking as they are leading link forks with no oil in them. The shocks are sealed units and seals cant be replaced, new ones are unobtainable. The oil is for damping but does not have much effect.

Ok mate

sooo......... is there no way to sort out the front end as its not doing a great job and on braking in rises and locks out with a bang? i have the kit to rebuild the front would that help or do i need to find different forks?

The fork kit may stop the banging but not the leaking shocks.
