I purchased a used specialized hardrock with the original RST gila suspention fork, but it is frozen and won't move under normal use. I've removed the lower screws and attempted to hit it with a rubber mallet like the guy in this video does to the exact same shock, but it won't move. I've also gotten a car jack in between the break arm of the shock and the top of the fork, and i've cranked it up. the shock lowers move about an inch but then the jack pops out and they rebound back to where they were instantly and i have to lower the jack again to get it in. what could be holding the shocks in place like this? they don't seem to be rusted closed since they move a little.
