Looking at the guards there's plenty of rub marks, and the dust seals have been shaved by the compression. Worse still when I compress the forks just bouncing them in my shed I can see contact

Now I need to figure out if this is causing the hammering vibration feeling I get at 50 mph. (Tyre already changed and wheel rebalanced)
