    Fox 40 made some pops - clicks - then collapsed??

    got my 40 back from fox last month -
    today is made pops and clicks when i pushed down on it -
    at the top of the trail it made the sound again and collapsed - and didn't rebound -
    so now it is at about 70mm travel and don't really work

    any suggestions? sounds like something went loose and then it didn't work.

    sounds like you need to contact fox?

    well - i've already done the screaming and jumping on a different fork...(Marzocchi)...

    anyways - called fox - they said some nut came loose and the sealed dampener became unsealed and it, i guess, all falls apart when that happens.

    not sure SMT - last time i sent it in in mid may i got it back the beginning of june - it was a bit less than 3 weeks - they said that it would be moved to the top of the list this time. i asked alex if i could get it back by the 26/27 cause i am headed up to whistler for my 1st time on the 28th - he said it would be back way before that. i hope he is right - i don't want to have to buy a new 40.
