bought my bike used and it has a rock shox mc3.3 rear shock. It makes noise when it moves. (like a fork with the rebound set low.) also it seems that the first cm is very smooth then it stiffens up quickly after that. Seems to work OK though besides that. This is the only full suspension I have owned so not sure if there is a problem.. I may replace it anyway as the pedal platform stiffens it up way too much even on the lowest setting. I've ridden a couple of other full suspensions, but didn't really pay attention to the noise or smoothness.
so do I have a problem? I'm suspecting the nonservicable damper my be hosed.
how do you determine the eye to eye length?? just measure when it's on the bike, or do I have to remove it??
