    You should be able to fix them yourself. Contact Fox for Nitrogen pressure specs, and adjust accordingly. Use Nitrogen, not compressed air.

    150psi of nitrogen, just get a new valve. Motorcycle shops will have the nitrogen, ditto on NO AIR! air has oxygen and will rust the guts of the shock.
