    This happened to me too, everytime I hit a big bump or small drop or whatever, it sounded like my fork was bottoming out hard....
    but I found out what it was and it was really nothing
    what my problem was:
    the shifter and brake cables slapping on my frame.
    I moved them and problem solved.
    check if yours are close to your frame, than that just might be it.

    wut do you mean? what type of riding i do with the DOT? DJ, FR, no DH

    other than that, the clikin noise shouldn't be too much of a problem unless you have sensitive ears

    Probably headset....change that first then see if the problem goes away...if not then send in fork

    Most likely headset
