The Fox DHX 5.0 on my 2006 Specialized SX Trail II spilled out all its oil yesterday. I have ridden the bike less than 10 times without any big drops. The biggest is maybe 6 foot to tranny. The spring rate should be correct for me as adviced by spring calculators on Mojo UK and TF Tuned. The sag is also within the adviced range. I contacted the official Finnish Fox Service Center and they will do warranty repair no problem, but they adviced me to check that the frame is straight ie. there is no alignment problem present. I'm going to check the frame/shock-mount alignment this evening but I was wondering how commonplace this kind of issue has been with Specialized? The Fox Service Center guy said that he has seen atleast Norco, Intense and Specialized frames with this issue and I know personally two guys in Finland that received disaligned Intense VPX frames, but I think in their case the problem was just that the shock mount holes weren't drilled straight.
