Thanks Rayzerman. My forks are at the dealer. I took them in because of fork seal repair. I tried to install them, but couldnt get the right one to seat right and just decided to bring them in to ensure they were both done correctly. That is when they called and told me about the rod...maybe they said Damping rod or something. Sorry, I don't know the exact piece that was chipped. I believe they said Compression or damping rod.
