I was tinkering around with my Manitou swinger 6 way today and as I adjusted both the low and high speed compression knobs a little bit of fluid would come out from under the knobs as I turned the knobs. It dose this every time I turn the knobs, so is there a blown out seal or something? Thanks for any info provided.

If it's not leaking dont worry. :thumbsup:

Sounds like you are getting seepage past the shaft what adjusting, most likely side to side play allowing the fluid to seep by. :)

Track down HAB he has been using a Fox DHX-5.O Coil & is going to be getting the Roco. Should be interesting to get a opinion on a back to back shock comparison. :thumbsup:
