Fox Shox 2.5 Install

Anybody know if there is an instruction manual out there for the install? Also, where can I get the nitrogen filled once they are installed?

If anybody has any pics of theirs installed, could you post them up if it's not a hassle?

I had fox 2.5's on my old truck. The body of the shock always mounts at the top with the shaft facing down. Damn good shocks. Weird they didn't come charged I know mine did.

there really isnt a right or wrong way to install, what is important if installing ( what most say is upside down ) is the valving, you can install in a non traditional way but the valving discs must be correctly to eliminate possible flat spots in the valving.

^^^^^What he said, and unless your 100% sure there is not a charge on them, then there is from the factory. I have never heard of fox not sending them with a charge and it is the only shock I will run, I hope to add the same to mine when i do my lift....also nice truck

They were charged when I got them, but......I had to let some out to install them. They still have a little charge on them, but I drove it when I was done and the truck was bouncin like hell. Just need to stiffen them up a little. Any idea where I can get them charged? Local motorcycle stores don't do it, and local off road shops dont either.
