Do a search, there are several threads on shock rebuild how-to. I think there also a video on youtube. Might be safer to have a shop rebuild for you. Shop can also modify shim stack, if you want to change damping (e.g. MX suspension usually too stiff for pure trail riding).

With 100mm race sag(rider aboard) and 25-35mm static sag(bike only), you have the correct spring rate. Race Tech and MX-Tech websites have “spring rate calculators” based on your weight. The stock fork spring are .44kg/mm, good for a rider at 195lbs; ....alex

Maybe Costco could charge your shock. They fill car tires with nitrogen. You just need it at 150 psi.

That would be cool, but no Costcos around here! All the dealerships here say they don't do it enough to justify the cost of having it...
