    Hoping someone could answer a question for me. I was going to check and adjust the nitrogen on the shocks on my 2012 Ford Raptor. The one on the driver's side I can get to the port is turned up but on the passenger side the port is turn down toward the lower control arm which does not allow access for the needle. Since I was only checking adding I was doing it with the suspension dropped out to take the full charge instead of removing. Would someone care to see which direction the port is turned on theirs.
    Thanks for any information you can give.

    In stock orientation you’ll only be able to access one of the shocks while it’s still mounted. When I rebuilt and added Schrader valves I had to to spin one shock
    180 so the valve would be pointing out. To remedy you’ll have to pull the shock out or at minimum unbolt the lower bolt, compress spring and spin it.
