I recently installed a unit fork on the hack and love the handling !!! I did not get a manual or any setup info. The unit has air shocks with a coil-over spring. I'm not sure how much air pressure to run in the shocks. On the race car we ran VERY high pressures of nitrogen and it's function was to prevent foaming of the oil. Some shocks run lesser pressures and the air is used as part of the ride height or suspension medium assisting the springs. Any help here ??? Thx, Dave.

I have never seen an air shock on any Unit brand fork. They usually run a Hagon non air shock. So this is some thing some one added more then likely they either had the shocks or needed a stronger spring or perhaps more adjustability for different weight riders? So as this is essentially a one off, there are no straight forward answer.
