How can you tell if a rear air shock is seized? :(

My Fox shock, not entirely sure what model, seems to not want to move at all. :twisted:

It don't think it is because of too high air pressure or a fault with the lock out, in fact I cannot see where the lock out is.


I tried the usual like spraying WD40 and wiggling it but still it woodn't move.

Any ideas?

Try drilling lots of little holes in the shock ,then do a 2 foot drop off.... that'll sort it.

You seem to have positive and negative terminals on there, so I am assuming this is an electric shock?

So it is one of the new fangled electronically control shocks then that needs a battery change.

This is a textbook case. Shock and paralysis have been long understood to enjoy an intimacy as life unto death. Recommend a course of desensitisation therapy and patient understanding.

Yew certainly have a problem. Have you checked everything in case you are just being a bit of a plank?

You must be pining for when it worked. I reckon a bit of work though and you can spruce things up nicely in time fir the warmer weather.
