    Something Loose in Mojo SL Frontend

    Need some help here guys.
    Mojo SL approx 2years old
    Fox Float 32 forks
    Cane creek IS-3 headset

    Problem: the front end feels loose, mainly as the fork goes to full extension. Most noticeable over chunky single track. It does NOT feel loose on smooth ground, hard on the front brake.

    I checked the headset, it seems fine. I'm guessing it's the fork bushings, but it came on all of a sudden, not gradually.

    I don't really want a month of down time sending my forks to FOX, without making sure that's the issue.

    Ant thoughts/theories will be appreciated

    Hard to diagnose.... Maybe the damper fluid is low or leaked into the lowers.

    Most local mountain bike shops can service Fox forks. Even the same day with an appointment.

    Thanks Derby. I was hoping it was an obvious deal. I'm pretty close to FOX, maybe I'll try running it down there if the LBS comes up empty. I wanted to make sure I don't break something

    Just a heads up--looks like a wasted lower headset bearing--should have looked closer

    That'll do it.
