New one for me. 2.5 bypasses, same nitrogen pressure, same valving... one is really easy to move and self extends quickly. I have replaced all the seals and it still does it. Haven’t replaced the wear band... any other ideas?

The firm one wont even extend on it’s own.

The fast one felt like it blew out last trip. The oil was foamy. I replaced all the seals and it still feels spongy.

Are you sure you have enough oil in it so the IFP isn't bottoming out in the resi?

Speaking of resi's, what's up with the funky hose and small resi's?

When I have paddles on they hit the resi’s so I put a spacer on them. Old shocks = baby reservoirs

So do you think the slow shock is wrong and the fast shock is normal?

Thanks for the inputs. I rebuilt the ‘slow’ one this am and not it moves like the ‘fast’ shock. All i did was replace the floating piston seal & the check valve seals. Didn’t find a smoking gun... i hate it when that happens,
