    Irritating squeek

    Not to long ago I broke the pivot arm for my shock. I had my LBS replace it (I felt obligated because they didn't charge me for the piece). But know I have a god awful squeek coming from my shock area. My question. I thought I had read someone (Carlos?) say that if you lube the bushings it will become a job that always needs to be done. Am I remembering correctly? If I am what do I need to do, replace the bushings? It's a Fox floatR

    The shock bushings on a Fox are bronze bushings, and don't require lube. Disassemble the two pivots. Clean them completely (I wouldn't use strong chemicals, I used light sandpaper to remove the gunk). Then re-assemble. The bronze is a self-lubing system, so all will be well in the world.

    Mant to reply a long time ago. All is well with the world again. I've been riding as much as possible lately
