    The cartridge body is secured by a bolt at the bottom of the fork legs. The fork cap holds the top part of the cartridge (rebound rod assy).

    This video demonstrates where the the "bolt on the bottom" is and how to get to it. Skip ahead to :45.

    I'd doubt its the fork cartridge (but it is possible). It could be worn bushings, especially if the fork oil doesnt get changed regularly.

    I think in that video, he does everything with the cartridge in place. He does demonstrate removing the fork caps from the cartridge assembly without messing up the rebound "synch".

    Remember those extra bumpers I found in my forks that were not shown in any service manual? Only engaged if bottoming out the shocks. Makes me wonder what it would sound like if hitting the maximum travel without such protection.
