Anyone know of place good place in the area that can service Fox shocks or anyone willing to show me how (willing to pay for their time)?

I noticed a little oil starting to come out on the TALAS 32 (damper side) and on the Float RP23 rear shock.

Ed @ Wheel & Heel has been great with my Fox forks.

The rear shocks are super straight forward, I can show you...The kits are probably available locally.

Yeah, the rear shock is not my real concern, it is the fork. From what I understand the left side (the height adjusting air shock) is really difficult to do without specific Fox tools and it is easy to damage the valving. The right side, the damper, seems to be doable so long as only the wiper and oil need changing.
