I got a 2009 nomad 2 that came with Monarch 3.3. I've never really used the shock until recently. I noticed right away how much easier it is to climb with but the ride quality on the DH is really crappy especially on the fast small hits. I see a tune sticker on the shock that said "E" and sure enough when I saw that rockshox leverage ratio chart thats floating around in this forum, E is one of the firm tunes and looks like my nomad should have the B tune.
I read about the new Monarchs that can be tuned by swapping tuning shim stacks. I'm wondering if I can use the same technique to my older Monarch (if it even have shims, if it does maybe I could take some compression shims out). The internals seem to be identical though looking at the diagrams on the 2 shocks. Anybody got an idea? Thanks.
