Hopefully someone can shed some light on this one for me.
I weight about 300lb fully dressed for riding. I continue to bottom out when riding through heavy 'mogues'. I am looking to purchase the FIRM torsion springs for the back. I notice a air valve on the FOX Shock. Should this be used to increase the shock pressure? Any and all suggestions are welcome. Probably dropping 50lbs is this best performance enhancement I can put on the sled, but that isn't going to happen in the next month...[:I]

No, that air valve on the shock is where the nitrogen is put in. To get a stiffer shock, you would have to get it re-valved. (I'm assuming it's the Position sensitive shock)

The firm springs would probably help quite a bit.
