Default Local shops to nitrogen fill shocks?

I'm thinking of tearing into my fox stuff rather than keep sending back to Cali to mess with the valving. Seems like to do the re-valve is pretty straight forward with not a lot of tool investment...unless I have to buy a nitrogen tank and regulator.

Seems like if you want to make the effort yourself to tune the system you'll want your own tank. Unless its simply a rebuild to same spec all the time. But I'll assume Christo has nitrogen.

Good thinking, I'll give Slee a call. I guess with their new shocks they'd have the ability to fill them! I do want to tune the system but my hope is that it will only take me another 1 or 2 iterations to get it set. I'll also get prices on a nitrogen tank, but the regulators can be pricey too!

Just buy the kit from Polyperformance and tune/recharge at will

Yep looking like buying a few bits and doing myself might be the right path. Plus easier install and removal as I can charge after they are on the truck! Airgas has a small tank and regulator locally (20 Cubic Feet, smallest one they have) for about 80 dollars, a few hoses, a regulator, and an adapter to get on the schrader valve and I should be set. More money to spend....
