Ok, so i bought a pair of shiver dc's, in "amazing condition" *cough cough*, bolted them on to my bike everything felt good apart from a small knock when the wheel came of the ground then landed again ( no noise on a compression where the wheel stayed in contact with the ground), the noise similar to that of a loose headset. Couldn't find the source of the problem so went for a test ride to see if i could find out the issue while riding. During the ride i noticed the knock was coming from the dampers at the top crown and got progressively worse as time went on. Got back, took both preload adjusters of to notice they were literally doing nothing, just sitting there. I then noticed something pretty serious, i can hold the stanchions and uppers and pull the two apart, there is literally nothing holding the dampers to the top crown. I think the preload adjuster should be attached to the top of the cartridge, holding the damper in place?
Anybody got any ideas? If somebody has a shiver and could take a photo of the assembly with the top caps removed? Any help would be really appreciated. I'm stuck.
