I would call around to shops up there and see who can fill it for you, i would think you could go around 700-800 in the rear.
I had my rear shaw on my 450 @ 700psi

if i recall correctly you can go well over 800 on them. i cant remember exactly what the guy at yarnell told me but its over 1000 i think.

The fitting on them are a standard shock fitting for quads, as long as they carry nitrogen and can fill most afermarket shocks they will be good. you will be suprised how fast you cn loose the pressure, it doesnt take much to get to 600 psi

You may also find a local welding supply company that can fill them with nitrogen. The big issue will be finding some one with a regulator that will go high enough. My rear comp shaw on my lightened stock frame with a +8 swinger was set at 1100psi. Shaw told me I could go up to 1500psi. Call them they will tell you what you need to know for sure.

pressure depends on weight and length of the swinger give them a call tell them your set up and youll be right on
