So I just upgraded my fork from a 36 Rhythm to the 36 Elite with the Grip2 damper. Picked up the fork used in good condition and had it serviced. First ride today and noticed it makes an unusually loud “sucking” sound during the rebound stroke.
Is this normal for this damper or a sign that something is wrong? Anyone else experienced this?

TIA.

I would say that it’s significantly louder than the Rhythm and More noticeable on the trail than I remember any other fork sounding. The fork appears to operate fine so the noise seems out of place.

Fox 36 with GRIP2 here. 170mm travel. Damper makes a kind of “pfft” noise on rebound. Functions just fine though... the adjusters work and it’s doing what I want. I also have an older FIT4 34 in 130mm that makes a similar, slightly higher-pitched noise (more of a "phwee").

Mine makes what I would consider a normal "suck" sound on rebound. Louder than my 36 Factory FIT unit. I think what you're experiencing is normal, IMO
