    Another member here (Santiago) has some Fox ProPedal shocks for sale.

    Do a quick search and follow his link. Great deal for a good shock.

    You can send it for a rebuilt or rebuilt it yourself, the quick and easy way to solve this is to replace it with a better one but that will cost more.
