OE shocks haven't been available for decades.

ALL shocks are oil filled. Some are also gas pressurised. Confusion 
about this is rampant. I'd have to draw you a picture to show you how 
the pressurization is done, but it's done to keep the oil from 
turning to useless foam when the shock is worked hard.
