Hi guys,
Went for a ride yesterday and noticed my Monarch RC3 Plus has a very noticeable knocking feel, like a small hesitation in its travel, at the beginning of its stroke, at around the 10% mark on the shaft. It happens in the compression stage only, rebound feels fine. It's there whether there's air in it or not, and it only happens in its lowest compression setting. When I move the lever to to the middle setting, all is fine.

I'm ready to give the shock a tear-down, any advice on what to look for? Thanks!

It was probably air that leaked into the shock oil (likely from the IFP). I did a tear down of the IFP and main chamber, and rebuilt the shock with fresh oil, as indicated in the Rockshox docs. Didn't replace any seals. Worked like a charm after. Be careful with screwing the IFP chamber back on, mine had a tendency to squish the o-ring seal.
