Has anyone of you guys serviced a Float R before? I guess my GT's one needs a service badly because it rides like absolute shit even with high PSI.

I personally have not. There is a link to an (older) Float R rebuild pdf here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=688

Do you know the shock was manufactured?

Around 2006-2007, it has the newer Fox decal on it.

Don't know if this will help:

Funny this came up today. I was over at my BIL's house today, to whom I sold my 2008 iDrive 4. He had snapped the frame a month or so ago, and he was showing me how he planned to weld it back together (using custom gussets).

He complained that the Fox Float shock had been acting kind of wimpy before the frame broke, and I told him I'd look for the link to the Youtube vid on how to service it.

The last bike I bought had Fox suspension on it, front and rear. It's adequate, I like the CTD settings, but my two bikes with the old Manitou Swinger 3-Way Air shocks work just fine by me, too, and I generally don't hear anything good about them..

Lots of good things being posted about the RS Monarchs, and my personal experience with my one RS fork, a Lyrik, has been superb. So I'm pretty optimistic about RS in general these days.

It looks like they have turned things around since the old Psylo days.

Psylos are absolute shit indeed, but the Duke's were AWESOME. Plush as warm butter, even with the Solo-Air spring, with the Coil uTurn it was unbelieviably smooth!
