Those valves always look crusty as hell, all you need to do is lube up the pivot and work it till its free, very rare that the piston in them seizes up.

I would not recommend dispensing with it without altering the system to a front-rear split with a manual bias valve.

you'll be fine without the covers.


make sure your new beam has the same length stub pin and torsion & roll bar sizes, and budget in for new bearings next year.
