So a couple of weeks ago I went riding and my Marauder felt weird, when I got back to the shop I threw it up in the stand and started to inspect it. I found what looked like worn out bushings and hard wear for the rear shock so I ordered the new stuff from Marzocchi. When it came I put it on but it appears that the mount on the rear triangle has actually spread. Has anyone else seen this happen? Also at the same time my Cargo 340 fork appears to have died. It will not compress very well and when it does the striction is so bad that it freezes down and has also developed a loose feel when rolling. At first I thought this loose feel was from the front wheel but the wheel checks out fine (the WTB wheels are awesome) so I think it may be inside the fork. Has anyone seen these problems with the Marauder? It is 2 years old and I ride about 2 times a week.
BTW, I am a mechanic at a shop and the bike is well maintained, all the pivots and hard wear are checked every couple of rides, this stuff just all happened at once. Four different mechanics at the shop have looked at it, test rode it, and checked it over and none of us can figure it out.
