I recently done a service on my fork, and one of the lower leg rubber grommets/ bumpers fell out, I replace it back into the lower leg, however ever since I think I have been noticing a harsher bottom out especially when in Climb mode and compressing the fork. Is there an orientation to the bumpers, as I replaced it as best as I could tell the same as the other side i.e. both visually looking into the lowers with a flashlight appeared to have the same pattern showing. Should it be very easy to bottom the fork in climb mode, in full extension mode I have around 10-20mm left before bottoming if I bounce on the fork (try to compress it using my body weight while stationary)
The other issue I have noticed is that when I put on full low speed compression I notice an odd squeaking noise, but if I back off 1-2 click the noise goes away, is this an issue.
Any helps much appreciated, bikes done approx 10-15hrs, and I am using Silkolene Pro RG2 as the grease. Incedentally my fork came to me dry with just grease but no fork oil.
