As per the title. My 2018 Fox 36 has a seized LSC dial. The HSC compression twists but isn't smooth. According to everyone I have spoken to it may have suffered from the known rusted adjust coupler.

Has anyone fixed this themselves? I have been told that a full service of the damper cartridge is needed.

Would love some tips if anyone here has resolved this.

Liberally spray with a light oil, after you remove the wheels or at least cover the rotors in clean rags.

Let soak, gently start working the dials back and forth... Take your time, reapply oil if you see improvement and continue working dials.

Might want to tie a rag around the stanchions as well to keep the mess down.
