Has anyone purchased a rear shock from Fox lately? Sunday I went to my LBS and paid retail for a new DHX Air 5.0 (Enduro version). Today I went to pick it up and they handed me what looked like a used plastic bubble-wrap bag with the shock in it and the manual rubber-banded around the bag. The bushings were tie-wrapped to the eyelets. I took the shock out of the bag to examine it and it had oil on every part of it. Not a lot but noticeable. Not just on the piston shaft but on the body and the resevior. I left the shock with the shop because I am afraid it might be used/rebuilt.
So a couple of question:
1. Is this the way Fox packages all rear shocks?
2. Do the shocks have serial numbers?
3. Is there any way to determine if the shock is actually new?
