    RockShox Monarch problem

    I have an 012 salsa spearfish with the Monarch shock and its leaking oil from around the rebound adjustment dial area. Its ether coming from under the dial or the 2 screws above it in the shock body. Also the rebound and the floodgate seem to do nothing to change how the shock acts.

    The shock needs a complete rebuild, as it sounds like the seals in the damper have failed, allowing rebound oil to leak out, hence no rebound control etc.
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    Yup, you need a full rebuild. Sorry pulser.
    The good thing is that if you have the tools and some expertise you can do it yourself.

    I think I want to get the XX with the remote lock out. Then I can fix this one and keep it for a backup.
