    Is my 6 way done for?

    I was tinkering around with my Manitou swinger 6 way today and as I adjusted both the low and high speed compression knobs a little bit of fluid would come out from under the knobs as I turned the knobs. It dose this every time I turn the knobs, so is there a blown out seal or something? Thanks for any info provided.

    If it's not leaking dont worry.

    Sounds like you are getting seepage past the shaft what adjusting, most likely side to side play allowing the fluid to seep by.

    Track down HAB he has been using a Fox DHX-5.O Coil & is going to be getting the Roco. Should be interesting to get a opinion on a back to back shock comparison.
