    Reba Oil Seal keeps popping up

    Good day, rode about 10 miles at Landahl this morning and when I hung the bike on the rack I noticed the front shock had an oil seal ride up the stanchion. This happened last week as well, I was told then to just press it back into place and spray some TriFlow on the stanchion. Is this normal? I don't imagine so, can it just be pressed back into place or should I be concerned and take this into a bike shop for repair?

    What would the normal warranty repair be here? Rebuild or replacement?

    As its on the air side of the fork its possible a air seal could be leaking slightly and pressurising the lowers and thats causing the seal to pop out. How old are they and have you noticed any air loss?

    Approximately 70 miles on the shock, about a month old.

    Take it back where you bought it from and have SRAM warranty it. You could take it apart and replace the o-ring yourself if you want to avoid the downtime.
