right on!, but I'm covered. We have a high pressure nitrogen servicing cart at work that goes up to 3000 psi ... Just gonna go there about 2 hrs before work so no one of "importance" catches me.

I only have one video from Sunday up on the north side. Which I haven't uploaded. Regarding the shocks, pressure is only part of the battle. Depending on original shim stack and purpose of shock it could be revalved to improve ride. I just did my rears before the weekend and noticed a huge difference.

I bought them new about a decade ago. They were valved for a TJ with 5" of lift. Gonna hit em with air and see how they act. Worse case I'll then send em out for a rebuild.
