You can use a normal pump as long as you pump slowly. I know your not supposed to but i had some Air Marzocchi MX Pro for a year and i used a foot pump, and they were fine. See this is why i went for  coil shock, no having to buy another pump and faffing around with shock pressures Wink

Coil shocks sound good in principle but they will be at least half a pound heavier plus you have barely any adjustment beyond some winding on of preload and a replacement spring will cost anything from £10 2nd hand to £40 odd plus new, with an air shock you put on your pump and adjust accordingly. There is no way I would have a coil shock unless i was doing 5 minute plus downhill runs in the Alps etc when you could get issues with the air ones over heating
