Adjusting Rear Shocks
Want to adjust my rear shocks to 20 PSI before taking a long ride (400 miles round trip) with a passenger and some light luggage. Trouble is, all I've got is a regular bicycle pump and tire gauge. Pretty sure I'm supposed to use a shock pump and gauge, but does it REALLY MATTER ALL THAT MUCH?
If it does, I'll have to go to AutoZone or Pep Boys and buy a shock pump with a built-in gauge. Is it worth it?
Will 20 PSI make a big difference, or should I go for more? It's at atmospheric pressure now, and I'll have a touch over 300 lbs total weight, including me, my passenger and some luggage.
