I have this fork and the plastic slider sleeves have worn out. Can I purchase replacements. The service manual says those are among the "wear-and-tear" parts.

Can you add the brand and/or model of the fork in your post? That will help us find some information regarding parts. Most likely the manufacturer has parts for order if the fork is not too old. – Aaron Aug 13 '13 at 13:40
The fork is SR SunTour, the exact model is not known but could be SF7CR-8R (page 121). – Vorac Aug 13 '13 at 13:45

The less expensive the fork, the less likely it is that you can find replacement parts for it. The glimmer of hope here is that you found a service manual and it lists part numbers along with noting that the parts in question are consumable. A call to your LBS, Suntour, or the bike manufacturer should sort this out. I would try them in that order.
