I have adjusted the spacers in my f29er Fox fork from 80 mm to 120mm. I am experiencing a clank on the rebound. Is this due to not having enough oil in the top end? Any thoughts as to why this clank is occurring? And what weight oil should I use and how much in order to slow down the rebound as to alleviate the clank? Thanks for your insight.
Pressure: 115 psi. Rebound: One click counterclockwise from all the way counterclockwise.
For this question I engaged Mark Fitzsimmons at FOX Racing Shox. He knows some stuff about suspension. Fitz says:

115psi is too much pressure unless the guy is racing 4x or weighs 200 pounds. As for the rebound, he should be running 4-6 clicks out.
For example, I weigh 165 pounds with gear and run 70 psi. Rebound about 8 clicks out.
If he makes these changes the noise will go away.
