all the tools can be hand built or bought ,,, the nitrogen can be sourced from any gas store. or you can use paint ball bottles (make custom gage)and refill them at sporting goods store .
shock gas pressures are pretty low.

I made all the tools (out of hardware parts and aluminum epoxy) to do ride fx shocks and fox for my sled,, copying pictures
ride fx had the rebuild info on line,, I couldn't find anything for fox
not all shocks come apart nicely and corrosion, bent rods, etc.
so parts/customer issues will be the biggest problem.
It took about 10 min. each (still working shock) if all goes well.
