I have never felt the need for a zero loss adapter. regular chuck has always done fine for me.
X2. High quality chuck is important.
Yea, except the high quality part. HAHAHA. Pretty sure mine is a pile, like every other ghetto tool I own. But, I do same method of fill till no more flow... then "pop" .... shit pops off and loses x amount. Don't care about x amount. I feel it is repeatable enough, and that's what matters to me. Just put it to 330PSI if you want 320ish. LOL

Oh, and I had same experience. ORW wanted something like $5 or $10 a shock or bumpstop. It doesn't take a genius to figure out the ROI on that .Like someone else mentioned. Never realize how much I would use the set up.

I use the EXACT same fill technique—fill, then pop off, then another push and pop. Done.
Here is my setup. Obviously I have broken and had to replace 1 of the gauges. Got the regulator on ebay from schmidty racing

Thanks for the heads up all. I will be getting the basic setup for simplicity. can always get a zero loss later if the need arises.

a personal fill station will encourage shock tuning as well. make the whole ordeal less of a hassle.

What pressures are you guys running? that photo showing a bump over 200psi. always thought 150psi was the magic number but never personally rebuilt one till now. or is 150psi a baseline and more of a tuning adjustment give or take the scenario.

So got the steering wobble of death taking it for a spin the other day.
The idler for sure has too much play even with new bushings, and centerlink suspect too. would like to keep this beefed up idler assembly but will need to be sleeved or bronze bushings later for use.

bought an OE centerlink and idler get her goin for now. Need to get my hands on a 5/8 bit to reem out the centerlink rod end holes.
