I couldn't help myself today, I had to figure out why my front shocks were frozen solid. I doused them with some wd40 to penetrate the grime and tried pushing down on them. Nothing. I tried tapping with a mallet--nothing. I finally put a board against the fork and hammered on it until the shocks popped off. What awaited me is too horrific to write, so I will just show you.

after about 30ml of black water fell onto the floor

close up of the shock absorber.

one of the shocks after some wd40 and a quick brushing. Ill buy some heavy duty penetrant this weekend and really clean them up.
