I have Fox Float shock that was "PUSH'd" about two years ago. Prolly put 2K to 3K on it with my trusty Tracer. Shock seems OK. No air leak what so ever. At point do you think I should have this shock overhauled via PUSH? Or should I just wait until air starts leaking?

The air seals can last for many years without leaking. It the nitrogen charged damper that starts to go. You may have noticed you need to crank the rebound to get the same damping performance or maybe you've just been riding with less rebound. If it works for you, just keep riding it. But if you want to get full performance out of it, it's time to send it in.

I will send it in since I do notice a very small amount of oil leak out of either schrader valve or rebound knob. I only notice the oil leak because of the dirt attracted to it. Thx again for the info.

I had my FOX RC redone by PUSH & they told me that a basic rebuild can be handled
by any LBS that rebuilds FOX shocks .
No reason to ship back to Push for that .
