    anyone actually heard any noise when the rubbery seal thing that seals where the piston shaft thingy goes into the shock body blows?? if so, what'd it sound like? I think i might have cooked that seal with exhaust gasses.... /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    If the seal went out fluid will be leaking our of your shock.

    ok cool... think i figured out what the noise was... seems that one of my front shocks had a loose nut... it managed to work its way off, then the bolt flew out. bad times! thankfully the way i have them mounted they couldnt fall over and hit the ground or anything. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif enter the locking nuts, grade 8 of course...
