    Yeah the shocks arenít fully charged from what I understand. Call Mel or King, Iím sure they can find someone closer to you.

    So what happens if you've been driving around on them not fully charged? Can you just charge them or has oil somehow displaced the bladder?

    No idea. The only reason I know this is from a savvy Offroad video about code-x. In one scene the mention charging the kings & show them filling one.

    EVO coilover kit help

    So, everyone that has a bunch of kings and foxes, has the expensive nitrogen charge kits? Like the powertank one is almost $600!

    No. They should come charged.

    The Powertank kit is unnecessary. You can build your own kit cheaper. You need a tank, regulator, a length of high pressure hose, a chuck and a no-loss gauge / charging manifold (the most expensive component).

    In Eddie's second video, it looks like they are charging them towards the end of the shop scenes. Mine will be here Monday so trying to figure this all out now as well.

    This is correct. They let all the nitrogen out of the coilovers to help make the install easier AND to make it possible to cycle the suspension system. They charged it up at the end.
