The fluid may have leaked out of the shock. I had to have mine replaced.

If it's still cold where you are the oil may not have warmed up when you felt it bottom out. If the oil is cold the damping can be too severe and cause the shock to pump down until it bottoms out.
Just a thaught.

The rear is re-buildable, but it would have to be done by someone who can re-charge the nitrogen. Several of the suspension companies can do them.

I have a used rear shock with about 1200 miles for sale if you need one
