    Answer Manitou SX, 4.0" travel needs help! Replace or fix??

    Hi guys,

    I'm running a 2001 Specialized Enduro FSR.

    The other day my Answer Manitou SX fork just gave out. It looks like its leaking oil and it seems to bottom out on small bumps.

    What are my options for getting such an old fork serviced?

    or Where can I find a good used fork? Any specific fork suggestions for all-mountain/ xc riding?

    Thanks!

    O-Rings shouldn't be too hard to find if you need them, oil and grease is readily available.
    Manuals and instructions for servicing forks can easily be found by doing a google search.

    It might be what you want.
    Braun's Online - MAN-ANTI-BOBLOCK

    Maybe a Skareb or Black Compression/Lockout Adjuster would work too.

    I have to look into CRC's offerings.
