Fox 40s gone soft?

Hi there!

I've had a set of fox 40s for about 4 months with the blue spring (150-180lbs, spot on for my weight) and until a month ago they've been perfect, I went on an uplift day and since then they've been stupidly soft (as in; i'm able to bottom them out pretty easily just riding pavements). I took the spring & 4 spacers out which seemed okay so I'm a bit stumped!

Any ideas?

Have you tried adding more damping?

I'm pretty sure they're 40 r, so they don't have any low/high speed compression adjustment

Do an oil change and then crank down the preload a bit, if that doesn't work try a heavier spring. Odd that this happened randomly, not to sure what could have caused it but start with the preload adjustment.
