Default How do the shocks work (break?) on Specialized Rock Hopper Comp FS

post back with the make/model of the fork and we'll be able to
help you better.

my Specialized Rockhopper Comp FS bike has two shocks,
Specialized Future FS Shock Sport (made in USA)
Basically they bottom out with the slightest pressure.
I was wondering how to rebuild or even get the parts.
What is inside? Foam? Spring? Rubber? Piston? Air?

Your bike is a goner.Not worth repairing.

Specialized forks are all made of high tension cold pressed aluminum
alloy spring steel and are not repairable.You can replace the entire
front fork assembly, including the handlebars but that will cost you
more than a new bike.

Best to put it up for sale and hope the new prospective owner doesn't
notice the two broken springs.You might even part it out on Ebay if
you need to make up the cost.
