    This clunking noise (FOX 36)

    I have a 2015 Fox 36 rc2 that is making THIS NOISE.

    Someone says it's the Check Limiter on the rebound assembly.
    Part # 210-22-248 in THIS DIAGRAM

    Before I start tearing apart my rebound rod,
    I wanted to ask if anyone else has solved this mystery.
    ... and yes I've isolated the noise to the fork internals.
    and no, it's not slop in the bushings or a loose air volume spacer.

    - thanks for reading!

    It's the spring and shim above it that they will be referring too, the spring is occasionally too soft/not preloaded enough so it lags and knocks when changing direction. Add another shim for preload or carefully stretch out the spring and it should take care of it

    This makes sense. It sounds like a spring.
    Thanks so much for replying!
