It's definitely the CSU with the wheel out if I twist the fork legs a bit they pop

worn bushings? Or do you mean popping of the stanchion/csu interface?

Seems to be a common thing with long travel single crown forks, the green loctite is suppose to fix that

I also had this on a Pike. I used Loctite 290 penetrating compound. It did reduce the creaking noise. I applied some drops on the interface with the bike upside down. Let it penetrate the gap (it's actually amazing how it can flow in tiny spaces) dyring a night.

What number green loctite is used for a creaky CSU?

I've had great luck with Loctite 609. No creaks after a couple of years. I heard of some using Loctite 680 also. (I never have, I stick with 609) Here's a few differences I looked up:

609 — general purpose retaining compound. Low viscosity. Ideal for gaps up to .005". Sheer strength of 3000 psi and good for temperatures up to 300°F. Fully fixtures in 24 hours.

680 — high strength retaining compound. High viscosity. For gaps up to .015". Sheer strength of 4000 psi and temperatures up to 300°F. Fully fixtures in 10 minutes.

Just for context bike came with the cane creek 10 series headset which does have a plastic crown race, swapped it for a metal one for a 40 and it went right away.

So I have busted my ultimate guide lever, I cant afford a brand new one. Can I mix and match the levers? So get 2 relatively cheap guide level T, guide R etc. (I can't have mismatched levers)
How much of a downgrade is it if I'm keeping the guide calipers? Will I notice that I have less power or modulation?

Thanks.

All guide levers are interchangeable, all you lose is adjustments by going to a cheaper lever. You could try warranting your existing lever as there was a recall on those.

Looking to replace my NX 11 speed stuff with the new MICRO shift 10 speed stuff for more range. 10s will fit on my FH, correct?

As long as it is an hg freehub then yes.

Thanks, I'm not original owner but worth a go. Will the power and modulation stay the same?

Speaking of advent, does anyone know what the cable pull is for advent 9? I’d like to do a little shimano brifter, advent derailleur 9 speed gravel combo.
