    Shock pressure on the actual shock has little effect that you would notice. It is mainly there for keeping the oil from foaming up. If you have air bumps they can be adjusted a bit with lower and higher pressure for slight spring rate change for the bump.

    Thanks, not bad at all. I actually did the ones on the front of my blazer last summer. Did these ones for the rear last night.

    You had info on some tuning with these didn't you?

    Okay don't habe understand why, but what can i do after installing this valve? Do i have than a way to make the suspension more comfortable by adjust the pressure? Read some more Treads about that and now i know that i can adjust the pressure inside the shocks. Do any of you know how to make the stock Fox more comfortable?

    On a stock raptor that is a dd/weekend warrior? Nothing and don't waste your time.

    If your into modifying and making stuff work better offroad.... Then shraders are way easier to put nitrogen back into the shocks after tearing them down and changing valving etc. The stock setup requires a goofy needle fill valve that I personally do not like, and is just one other tool to keep track of. Also my fox 2.0 bump stops have shraders on them, so why not just have one fill tool.

    My shocks arent really raptor related though.... I just like you guys for the shocks you get rid of, so just keep upgrading to better shocks and selling your oems to people that cant afford a raptor like me ;)

    The Raptor is a non daily driver daily driver car. Take it to pul, trailer or any other work think's.
    But i think that the suspension is not good for trailer and/or street comfort. These two points i will fix, Raptor need more comfort in this two situation. I was hope that i can bring more comfort to the suspension to update valve and than set the pressure higher or lower.

    Thanks
