    My Fox 36 Float is starting to really feel like mashed up dogpoo being pushed through a garden hose. So its time to get it fully serviced, me thinks.

    Anyone up here in Canaderp want to provide feedback on any service centers?

    From what I can see, there are 3 major choices; OGC, Vorsprung and Suspensionwerx.

    OGC would be easiest, as I can just hand the fork over to the LBS and let them take care of the entire process. But, I'm guessing that isn't the quickest method and who knows what the quality is like.

    Vorsprung and Suspensionwerx both seem pretty good. Shipping cost would be about the same.

    There is also S4 Suspension in St-Jerôme, Québec.
    They are pretty good.

    i'm pretty sure the guy who runs vorsprung used to be a regular on RM a while back.

    Good question actually. I did replace the bladder in my old Fox 36 Van twice. Wasn't too hard. Definitely need proper clamps though.

    I want a "pro" to look at the fork though, its been hard to tell if its my brake pads moving or if the bushings in the fork might be knackered.

    I got a very good and professional service from SuspensionWerx for my Pushed Fox34.

    Next time I'll probably try S4 because they are more local to me and I only hear good things about them.

    OGC's service is pretty good, never had an issue with them. They also deal with customers directly so you don't have to necessarily go through your shop.
