If I recall correctly, the movement will be underneath the black rubber boot.

Thanks Timbo.
I don't see anything moving. So I'll have to open that puppy up and see if there is any oil missing in there.

OK. For those of you wondering where the movement should be; Timbo was right.
It's under the black rubber trim. It'll be between the red and green arrow in this picture

Movement is less than 1/2 inch and as Smokescreen says, it compreeses the spring.
