    Fox forks compressing but not rebounding!

    I know this is the wrong place for this but i figured theres knowledge here with the DJ guys. My fox forks will compress fine, but it takes them 5 minutes ( i timed it ) for them to rebound. They where rebuild about 5 months ago and had not been ridden hard since i had them done. The rebound knob is doing nothing and the spring tension is hard to turn and does nothing... Any ideas???

    how did it start doing it?
    was it normal riding, or a particularly hard hit?
    was it fine one night and not the next morning?
    did it get slowly (or quickly) get worse up to that point?

    i don't know why it's doing it, or know much about forks. i'm just curious.

    I had a harsh endo landing earlier that day, but nothing too bad, When i noticed it i was doing 180s in a parking lot lol. they compress and lock out on the rebound stroke. i think i have it narrowed down to a busted seal in the rebound cartridge.

    have you pulled it apart and looked at it?

    i have a rockshox argyle. i don't know a lot about how it works, but i've pulled the top (only?) cartridge out, and it seems to let oil from the fork flow up into it.
    what i'm saying is if i'm correct and your fork is anything like mine, maybe the problem is in some part of the compression circuit?

    i really don't know what i'm talking about. i wish i did. >.<
