The spring/damper assembly needs attention. It leaks and looks generally distressed.
I see new replacements are not given away, so will likely get this one fixed.
There is a ball joint assembly top and bottom (Heim joint I'm told), that is a press fit in the damper ends.
The top one had moved over, to the extent that the damper was rubbing against the frame.
It looks, from the sketch in the parts book, that there should be distance pieces on either side of the Heim joints, all missing on the bike here.
Would I be correct in assuming that they are steel spacers, with two different outside diameters?
It looks like something like that would work, to help retain the joints in their proper central positions.

Don't be trying to work all this out yourself, find a local suspension specialist and drop it in for service. Motorcycle suspension is difficult to work on without the right tooling.
