Im planning on lapping my slk-900a hs but in order to do that i need to remove the 4 pads that are on there and when i do i cant reuse them. Is there a place where i can get more?

its just i wouldnt like to take the risk. i heard that it may even crack the core without them during high temps or just after time.

Unless you're playing hockey with your tower it shouldn't be a problem. The only way you crack the core is if you clamp the HS on crooked or too hard. Just fasten the screws down 'till they stop turning and you'll be good to go.

well i have a slk-900A hs not a 900U. thats why i need the pads. but i mean have you guys even heard of a place that may have these things? theres always they way of opening one of the boxes and taking them out and putting it back but that wouldnt feel right.
