ahh in which case you SOL. they are great when working but due to being out of busess then you are going to find parts difficult.

In working order they are great. from memory the rebound dial on min didn't click either and made no difference really till the last third of its adjustment

You should never cycle a Stratos shock through it's travel with no air in it. It will cavitate, and need to be burped. I have the instructions for burping them on my comp at home (I'm at work now).
