    weird oil leak DHX 3.0 Shock

    Noticed the other day a vey thin oil film at the spot in the pic.Even if i wipe it off it comes back, is this normal?((its not dripping or running down the shock tho)
    (This problem accured after a recent rebuild by fox)

    Would you guys send it back to fox?

    If it just came back from Fox, then it's probably okay. I'd wait a while before sending it back in again, as most likely the tech put just a tad too much oil and now it's weeping out.

    Why haven't you contacted Fox about it?

    Blow it out real cheap in the classifieds and buy a Cane Creek DB or an avy. Fox rear shocks are turds.

    um, yeah, okay.
    I kinda wish my brakes actually worked, but I guess that just makes me faster, right?

    Try tightening the body's end cap a bit. Maybe a tech didn't get it tight enough?
    This won't hurt a bit...

    yes the was already checked

    My LBS is giving me a hard time saying that its not real problem (because he doesnt see oil leaking) and wants me to pay up for the shipping and handling(the shox is still under warranty)
