<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">*IF* you do not see any oil leaking from around the seal, you may want to replace the schraeder valve on the reservoir and have the thing re-charged with nitrogen. I thought I was gonna hafta replace mine, but this local dirt-bike dude told me that 50% of the time, there's nothing wrong with the shock, just the el-cheapo schraeder valve gets leaky. 180psi of nitrogen and $8 later, mine was good as new.

Of COURSE, if there's oil leaking past the seal on the thing, you're gonna hafta re-build or replace it.
