I have a 2005 Five Spot with a DHX Air 5.0 shock and was a bit suprised when I encountered some clearance issues when trying to fit my Fox shock pump onto the schrader valve for the main air chamber. It seems that I simply did not have enough clearance between the schrader valve and the rocker. I initially addressed the issue by removing the top shock mount bolt and rotating the shock away from the rocker. I got tired of this pretty quickly. I was able to find a Tire Valve/Cap Extension from Napa Auto Parts (Part No. 901914) that has solved the problem. The part costs a few bucks and it takes 5 seconds to install. I thought I would pass this infor along in case someone else has had a similar problem. I have attached a picture of the valve/cap extension for your viewing pleasure. Hope this helps somone out there.

Yeah, that sounds simple and effective, but....

Darren at Push milled this one for me.
