Is a 34 over forked for my bike? Or does it really matter over a fox 32
2mm larger diameter stanchion is not a big jump. Not even noticeable. There will be less flex with the 34s too. The newer forks are typically lighter anyway. I think of Over forking as more a travel (plus weight) thing. You're probably keeping the same travel, right? 120mm is perfect for an XC bike.

That fork likely never had service, ever. Eventually dirt gets in, oil and everything is contaminated, and that's the result. You might be able to put in new uppers, but there could be damage to the bushings etc.

Might be easier to find a new one
