I recently took my fork into my mechanic for service because it was making a rattling noise in one of the fork legs. Upon initial assessment he thought it was a broken return spring for the air cartridge. Turns out the fork is primarily spring with a little air on the side. Also turns out that the springs are just worn. Couple questions:
- Am I better off replacing springs or buying a new fork?
- If the springs are that worn, will other parts of the fork be breaking soon?
- Can I replace fork springs myself? I've done an oil change and seals/wipers so far on my own.
