Exactly the question I was about to post, I'm interested in answers too!

Additionally, I remember seeing a thread somewhere dicussing removal of the shock, claiming that if it was done in some smart way, it was a 2 minute operation. Which is the the easiest way to do this?

I'll probably send the shock for service though...

Contemplating replacing the fork springs with a bit stiffer set (I'm 5ft 10, 210lbs).
Also thinking about a new shock spring!
When do you guys rebuild the rear shock, replace the inner fluid and fresh nitrogen?
What's the necessary frequency of that process?
BTW, there's no leakage, no oil visible on the shock, and the linkage gets fresh grease annualy!
I don't race, ride some offroad, nothing extreme, bike handles ok for me.
Thanks for your ideas / replies!
