My Fork has just....

I just got back in from riding and my RST Gila T4 keeps bottoming out when a do 3ft dropoffs. I'm pretty sure its a Coil Spring. Is it time for a new fork, or can i fix it?

thanks,

You can probably just get stiffer springs to help.

I had the same fork on my Hardrock... the only thing adjustable is preload. Its an OEM fork so I don't think you can expect anymore from it.

I turned it up all the way and I felt a good bit of difference bombing around town.
