Question about my shocks

I just noticed that when my front shock is completely released like to make a drop or after hitting a jump...they make a little click sound...and when it comes back down it makes the same sound....is that normal?

Its probably just the damping in the fork. Different forks make different sounds.

hmm...Ok I have a travel question...is the "travel" of a fork the total length of the metal showing, or the literal distance the metal will slide into the shock tube.

Travel of a shock would be the difference in length between full extension and the tightest possible compression
