air shocks

Was playing around with my front air shocks on my bike,1985 1100 ltd, and found that there is some rust in there. Left seal has been leaking a while so I knew I was gonna have to tear them down. Now I know I have to tear down and REALLY CLEAN them and inspect...

Since air carries moisture what do you guys think about charging with nitrogen or some other inert gas?

Seriously, after a good seal job, install 15wt fork oil and Progressive suspension fork springs. Then FORGET about putting air in them ever again.
You'll thank me later.
