Hello I just pruchased a new 2006 Brodi hard tail bike with a Marzocchi Drop Off 4 shock. The bike was just sitting in the bike shop all these years. My problem is the rebound on the front shock. If I jump off a curb or have the front wheel off the ground and the shock is fully extended you can hear a low clang in the front shock. I would think there is some sort of bushing or something in the shock to keep it from making that noise but I might be wrong.

The supression of the shock is fine and soft. It only happens when the front wheel is off the ground and the shock is going to it fully extended postion its almost like the reverse of bottoming out with a firm metal clink sound. Thanks for any advice or help.:madman:

I had a drop off a few years ago...about the noisiest fork I've ever owned! I think the combination of a very primitive damper and weak negative travel springs are part of the issue.

I rode it a couple years and never had a reliability problem...I'm guessing its the same case with yours.
