your seals may need to be replaced by now. a tip i got from the Fox tech for good fork hygiene is to "floss" the fork, that is, get all the dust and dirt and particles out from between the stanchions and uppers. this keeps little grains of crap from getting down into your stanchions. you should be doing this after each ride.
and no, i don't either. but i should.
