adding shock oil

I went to add shock oil today (30cc). The second shock I drained the nitrogen off of I got a lot of oil out of after the pressure was relieved. The other 3 did not produce any oil. Is this a sign of bad seals or shims?

If the seals were gone, I would think you would see oil all over the control arms.

Re: adding shock oil

Isn't there an internal seal other than the ends? I know the shim stack lets oil pass through. But I thought it would drain back as it sits. I do not know. I jacked it up and drained the pressure off of one shock. Just a little mist as I slowly pushed the Schraeder valve. On the second when the pressure was gone I got oil. Clear oil not airated. I do not know how oil got that far up in the body with no pressure and at full droop. I guess I could call Fox. Just figured someone had seen it by now with all of the racing. But no that is how my luck runs.

Re: adding shock oil

The Fox shocks are very simple.
There are 2 wiper/lip seals in the end cap. One keeps the oil in, the other keeps dirt out.
There is a piston, bolted to the chrome shaft. It has a piston ring. I think its made of rulon. On each side of this piston is a stack of thin washers, one for compression and the other is rebound.
I don't recall, if there were any holes, in the piston, for drain back. At full droop, most all of the oil would be on top of the piston. The schrader valve side.
I think the Nitrogen gets dissolved into the oil, at high pressure. When we release it, it begins to bubble out of the oil, like it was boiling.
When I rebuilt my shocks, I could hear this boiling action happening. So I would let a little Nitrogen out and then wait, then a little more and so on. I was trying to save the oil, to measure it.

Yes, on the first shock, I caught most of the oil with my face. I don't recommend this.

Re: adding shock oil

Oil in the face is not the best way to catch it for sure. It was weird I only had the issue with one shock. They seemed to work fine on my last trip. I have not had mine apart yet, but from the breakdowns you guys have supplied to me they look pretty straight forward. No need to worry about the shocks if I can't get the belts too last longer than 20 hours. Thanks Bearfoot.
