Re: Quick suspension question
well I weight about the same as you and I still get some drop (20K miles). I tried to set the rear at lowest setting but when I hit large bumps it eventually pops up to two somehow so I just left it there.
now your front forks, change the oil and crank the preload down all the way. add about 1/2 turn (hard) from full soft and it rides like butter. Make sure your rebound it nice and snug too it should rebound quite quicly.
To answer your question no, unless there was a gas leak. the rear is gas filled so it shouldnt wear out. You might be riding on the spring with no gas in the shock and from what you say, that very well sounds like the problem. You should beable to get the shock recharged and see if it leaks....
