Re: Anyone knows Walker Evans gas Shock pressure ?
The pressure in the shock has nothing to do with the overall travel of the shock. Also... the pressure in a shock like this is not like the pressure in an old "Air shock" that you would have on car. The pressure is not meant to be used to tune the feel of the shock. The pressure is there to keep the oil from foaming, and fading with heat. Not to mention... that's not air at the shraider valve. It's N2. Please do not adjust the pressure of the nitrogen.
As far as the second part... the springs don't change the tavle of the shock either. (Unless they are binding)
If you think you need more overall travel... you need different shocks, with a different stroke length.
Finally, if you have oil at the valve... your diaphragm (or piston, depending what that shock uses) is probably leaking, and it's getting time for a rebuild.
