I have a Fox Talus on the rear of an almost new Trek Liquid. It appears that the shock makes a slight clunking noise at the beginning of every compression stroke. Since it is bolted onto an aluminum frame, it is magnified to a "marble in a tin can " sound., one time only, at the beginning of every compression stroke. Is this a normal noise? It has done this since new, and is getting more annoying as time goes on.The shock seems to function okay otherwise, the same in any travel mode. Thanks.

If it happens when you lift the seat as well, you may just need to snug up the mount bolts...they don't go RFT, but do need to be snug.
