My adjustment

I bought a Modquad 4" extended swing arm with Elka shock and had them install it to their specs. I called Elka up about the stock fronts. He said to loosen them up so they could move.

Adjustment over.

Very informative!! StuPID Question here I I guess.

WHAT is the air pump valve on the bottom of the chamber at the top of the shocK? Does that need to have air in it?
