Anyone Rebuild their own remote resi shocks?

Hey guys Im getting ready to head back home from deployment and have a set of Icon Extended travel C/O's and rear shocks with the remote resivoirs. I am a mechanic and have always worked on vehicles so my skill level is decent, im just kind of new to suspension systems. im just wondering how easy or hard it is to rebuild these myself and keep from sending them in to a shop and what not.

As far as servicing them what all is needed? anything with valves or fittings? seals/gaskets etc...

thanks for any and all help and advice in advance.

first time is kinda tricky? I have no experience but let me find you that link.

I'm sure it isn't that hard. You still have to go to a shop to get them charged with nitrogen.

I did my coilovers its easy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=POunLnsInQk

All you need is a seal kit, oil, tools, for example seal pick, air compressor, posibly allen tools, then when finally finished nitrogen charging, which should run about $5-15 bucks per shock.
