Rockshox tora 302 squeak?

I have these rockshox tora 302 2008 forks and i've had them for about 5 months, but theyve been squeaking ever since i got them with my bike. They squeak whenever i bunnyhop, but they do squeak at other times. They did come greased, but they still made the noise. This seems like a common problem, but i can't find any solutions. Is there anything i can do to stop this irritating squeak?

Thanks

If you have coil springs or the coil spring U-turn adjuster then it may indeed just need some grease (yes, grease). Unless you have dual coils, you'll also have suspension oil on the right leg where the damper cartridge and/or air preload is, but your coils will be greased. It's hard to tell you what to do to quiet your fork because squeaky and squishy fork sounds can come from several different things....some of them are normal for some forks, and some indicate the need for service.

All coil springs make a certain amount of noise....it's just part of what a coil fork is. Lots of air forks make squishy or gurgley noises, too, and I've even had a couple high quality air forks that wouldn't stop with the squeak. Sometimes with coil forks they don't get the right type of grease on them if a shop services them, or some of it gets accidentally wiped off when they reinstall the springs. I think the best thing for you to do is try to hook up with some experienced riders or shop employees and let them test ride your bike or at least bounce on the fork. Maybe they can tell you what you're hearing better than we can on the internet.

If you go to Sram's website you can download the .pdf service guide for your fork. http://sram.com/_media/techdocs/95-4310-745-000%202006%20Tora%20Service%20Guide.pdf They aren't hard to service if you have a reasonable level of mechanical skill and the necessary new parts for a rebuild. If nothing else, you can see how your fork is put together and be able to understand what is going on inside. That might help you diagnose the problem or be able to tell a bike shop mechanic what you think you hear. Fork service from a shop will run you from $20 to $80 usually, depending on the fork and what needs to be done, new parts, etc.

Hope this helps some....if you find out more post up again. :o )

EDIT: Bikeworks....Sram disagrees with you. Read the service manual. And yes, it really is common to grease coil springs....always has been and still is. Not on all forks but most. Apparently Sram believes it's still necessary. Oil does the lubing in air forks and on the non-coil side of some coil forks. And sure, it could be other things....just going by what he wrote and by what I know about forks. check out that service manual though. :o )
