crf x showa forks locking up????

had fork seals change apx 6 months ago(not honda/showa dealer but was fine after) only used 3/4 times since-now when fully extended to swap wheels/tyres forks seam to lock up -can be pushed down with much force but has no rebound-tryed undoing bleed screws but dosent get any better-is there a procedure for bleeding??

any ideas? thanks

You're going to have to take them apart to find the problem.

No problem inside your forks. The triple clamp bolts are to tight pinching the outer fork tube and making them stick. Loosen them and then properly torque the bolts. Also loosen you're axle and re-center it
