I ha ve a Fox Nude here which i Serviced

Product Photograph Lens Technology Camera accessory


But After putting the shock together i was not sure about the position of the volume spacer

I checked the net saw normal ( non Nude ) Fox Shocks the spacer is installed at the head of the shock but in the Nude the Nude shims are there

Therefore the only place i figured out the spacer would fit is at the upper part of the sleeve !

I take pics as I go when I dissemble something I'm not intimately familiar with. Could be suspension, pivots, hubs, steerer spacers, cable routing, etc... Comes in handy putting it back together.

Yes-spot on
Thanx..

Exactly right.
Bu the problem was : i assumed that after 16 years of experience i have opened & serviced a lot of shox... Also i had a little experience in the Fox Nude its self....

But i miss calculated the situation & also the trend in bike part manufacturing companies to differ the design in every model in every year....:ciappa:

But after all thank you very much for you tip & point....good one

And not bad to mention after mounting the shock on the frame that was indeed literally a pain in the :ciappa:

I fount out the lower seal leaks and was forced to take the shock out of the frame again take out the seal + wiper grease them agin and install them

And why was mounting the shock a pain.....

Because the remote cable was internal and i hate internal routing i guess any mechanics hate them god sake it wasn't a hydraulic remoe line like Rock Shox's

To add some pain when the shock was in its place there was no room for your hands and fingers to go reach the cable end.....

you had to attach the cable to the knob while the shock was out then put the whole thing back in place but yet some more pain was just putting that damn thing in place

Again why ???

Because the upper end of the shock ( really the loser end the Scott Engineers likes to design the mounts upside down !!!) wouldnt go set in place that easily as the rocker arms had only like a quarter of a circle ( 90 Degrees ) Free for the shock eye to enter the other 3 Quarters wad blocked Somehow these days engineers & companies do like to me reminded in our minds with good reputation !!!:cool:

Getting the cable straight and stretched was a dilemma too Not to mention the bolt holding that upper end was a weird one

Forgot to take a photo but the Torkx shape which your tools needed to engage in was on the opposite side not on the bolts head side...

Why ?? I really dint know....if anybody knows just let me know too !!

So in order to thread that sh** You had to push the head with one hand and simultaneously wind the torx on the other side with another hand while remembering to rotate it in the opposite direction of normal tightening AKA CW....

Dont know whats up the engineers these days ?

Hi, When i disassembled the shock for service, there were a loose metal retaining ring inside the air chamber, but i cannot see any diagram on Fox site from this shock. It is the ring in your photo, on the left of the air can. Do you remember where to put it?

Also, the volume spacer in the photo has the correct face up ?
I have a 2018 Scott Spark RC with rear shock product code DDBL, but i cannot find any information on Fox site, like rebuild kit numbers.

Thank you very much for your help.

Hi, Have you found out where to put the loose metal retaining ring? I have the same problem.
Hi, I put the retaining ring to hold the first valve on top of the shock. I asked for help from Fox technical support, but they refused to help me. This was their reply:

"We do not have the info on our site for the Nude shocks for general consumption"

Hi

i also had the same issue where to put metal retaining ring but have chosen the right place looks like :)
However after reassembling the shock i have now leaking float fluid from the airsleeve - the air pressure is OK no air leak, the shaft is also OK no fluid on it, the leakage is at the bottom where the airsleeve is threaded in. Do You have an idea waht could be the cause ?

Also how to change the o ring in the eyelet below the silver thing where the metal retaining ring is in ?

Leaking fluid at the air can threads after an air can service is normal. You can’t change that o-ring yourself-required a strip down. Why do you want to replace it? It’s the bottom-out bumper.

i meant the big o ring seal (size of the aircan) at the bottom marked with an arrow on the attached picture.

How to remove the "thing" marked with a circle to get access to the "housing" ?

I have a Spark RC and have the issue of constantly bottoming out the rear shock. Does anyone know if this volume spacer can be swapped out for a larger one? I can't find any can spacers like this online to purchase. I don't see anywhere else to put a volume spacer though since there is that shim at the head of the shock.
