Fox Sues SRAM Over Fork Bleed Valves
Manitou had grease ports for bushings back in the late 90s or early 00s. While it seemed like a great idea, people would ignore service intervals and just continually pack grease into the lowers until the fork could barely move.

Opinion: I Love Internal Cable Routing, There I Said It
Who at Magura thought it's a good idea to route the front brake hose where it gets sheared between the fork arch and crown at bottom out - or buzzed by the tire?

First Look: Fox's 34 Fork Gets a Redesigned Crown & More - Pond Beaver 2021
@edfw: This is incorrect. Not all fork bushings are slotted. For example, check the bushings in this old Boxxer: https://www.pinkbike.com/news/Tech-Tuesday-Replace-Seals-on-RockShox-Boxxer-World-cup-2011.html

Video: Jordi Explains the Purpose of Valves in a Shock in the Latest 'Dialed' Episode
And if Steve made a shock someone else would start a business to "fix" his shit too. Making good suspension is difficult and there's no perfect product.

Review: Yeti SB140 - Little Wheels & Lots of Fun
Anodized colors can vary due to different base materials. Yes these are all aluminum bits, but the same anodizing process can yield different hues when applied to different alloys (i.e. 6000 series vs. 7000 series aluminum). The same variation exists for other colors too... reds, blues, etc..

Video: Magura's New MCi Conceptbike Has Just 1 Visible Cable
Routing brake hoses out the bottom of the steerer tube on that one pictured bike is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. There's no clearance in that space to have hoses flopping about. The brake hoses WILL be damaged as the fork moves. 1) Front & rear will both get smashed between tire and crown at bottom out, and 2) the front hose will get sheared between the fork arch and crown at bottom out. Good luck with your brakes after that. Someone was not thinking clearly.

@doe222: Actually your 2019 DHX2 has a ti-nitrided shaft. You can't Kashima Coat steel.

Jackson Goldstone's Custom Painted Lunar Trek Session - Crankworx Rotorua 2020
When you sit on a saddle that low your knees are heavily bent and your pelvis is rotated back compared to a normal riding position. Having the seat angled back to match is more comfortable for a DH saddle height. If the seat was level and that low you'd be sitting on just the back edge of the saddle with all the pressure on your sit bones. Tilting the seat back spreads out the pressure points better for the rare times you're actually sitting on the seat.

RockShox Announce New Super Deluxe Coil
@hamncheez: Often what appears as a rebound issue is actually a spring or compression damping issue. From your description it sounds like you're slamming through travel and bouncing uncontrollably off the bottom out bumper. If you're at 25% sag + max volume reduction already and still bottoming super hard, you would probably benefit from some additional high speed compression damping. That would help slow you down through the full travel and prevent the rush to bottom that you're experiencing. Of course your high speed rebound damping may still be too light for your bike leverage ratio and and the spring force you require. But to me it sounds like you might need a bit more HSC. Modifying HSC and/or HSR in a Monarch means changing shims. As stinky-d-lux mentioned you're probably a rider just outside the limits of your current shock tune. A custom tune for your weight and riding style might make you happier.
