Rebas noise....

    Got some Rockshox Rebas about 4 months ago and they've been faultless until now. Yesterday I went up to 1350 ft in Bowland Forest (did I sweat!) and the RH fork leg began to make a kind of "sqoinch" noise on fast rebounds. Later I noticed that some oil had leaked past the wiper seal.

    I believe the RH leg takes care of damping so could this be the effect of the altitude causing some oil to escape from the damper? Or are they goosed? I've read about Reba damping cartridges failing and allowing oil leakage on STW.

    Any opinions?
