Anyone else have this issue? This is on a fresh air can service as well that we thought it would take care of the issue. It slowly got worse until it was pretty constant only after riding for 10-15 minutes though. Shock is back at trek for a full service but was just wandering if anyone else experienced this issue.

oh man, I went on my first proper ride with the Slash since getting it. Put the shock in pedal mode and it kept making this sound. Was yours in pedal mode too? I dont remember noticing it in the open mode, but you got me thinking if I should take mine back to the trek dearler

Mine started out doing it only in pedal mode and ever so slightly, but eventually it did it in all modes, I thought it was my pedal or my shoes or something. Got progressively louder and more common over about 100 miles. Only does it about 2 miles into riding if mostly uphill.

So when I took it into trek with the complaint multiple times they couldn't reproduce the sound. But they did a minor service on it but that still did nothing.

Last two rides it was ridiculously loud so I filmed it and said here it is!! So they sent it out for a full rebuild.

I have not exceeded the service time interval between last rebuild and this one. So it is getting a full rebuild at no cost to me.

I think I have about 5-600 miles on the shock

Took all the air out and gradually filled to recommended pressure by cycling the shock every 25psi. Will see how it feels

Got shock back about a week ago. Finally got to ride it. No notes on the rebuild but squeak is gone. Odd thing is air pressure used to be about 215 to get 25-30% sag and now it is at 235...not sure if i was mistaken on my previous notes or something is weird. Im about 225 geared up...
