Type of gas used to fill fabtech shocks???

Does any body know if it is just pressurized gas or is it nitrogen or something else? Thanks!

X2 on Nitrogen.
I used to rebuild MX shocks for my own personal use. If you're planning on doing this yourself, you need:
Tank of Nitrogen.
Nitrogen Regulator. (High and low side like a cutting torch, welder, etc regulator)
Specific valve, something like a schrader valve.
EXACT PSI recommendations.

Did you let some nitrogen out of the shocks or rebuild them?
