Specialized Fox Shock Rebuild?

Is there anyone local who can rebuild the Fox Shock (custom float/autosag nonsense) that came on my 2016 Stumpjumper? Or am I going to have to have it sent in to Specialized/Fox? It's had a leak, I suspect, since I got it, but now the POS is losing 80 psi over a 1 hr ride... A little help?

You can bring it by the shop Tuesday if you like and I can take a look at it.  If it's just the air sleeve seals then we should have those in stock.  The valve core and nozzle can be prone to leaking on those as well.

I had the same issue with mine. Leaked about 50-60 psi almost any ride. Sent it off, and Fox said my lever switch stem was bent, seals were leaking, and too much fluid had been into it. Cost me 170 bucks to get it done and shipped both ways..and still there's no noticeable difference in the 3 different ride selections. I've heard this is normal and that you really can't tell a difference. But no-one told me that when I purchased the bike NEW IN STORE. 
Just sayin
