    Does anyone in here know what a Monotube coil over pressure should be set at? My RRD Shock were shipped with no Pressure in them and I would like to know what to set them at. I have a Rockkrawler Suspension I just put on it and it rolls a lot from the Torque of the Drive Train. Hate it.

    Welcome! Depending on valving, Ive run 100 to 180 psi in shocks. The pressure doesn't have as much of an effect on the shock actuation as one might think, but you can use it to "fine tune" the behavior. Nitrogen and high pressure is used to reduce cavitation of the oil inside the shock.
