Default Double up the fork oil seal

Wondering if anyone has ever used two stacked oil seals in the forks, and if they have did it work or was it a waste.

Default no

You would need to machine out an extra length pocket to move the slide bushing, spacer seal, and the double thickness of 2 fork seals. Putting in 2 slide bushings would be worthwhile, 2 oil seals are not. Either they leak or not.
