Air cartridges in both legs ( one for spring, one rebound ). Be ultra-careful putting them back in ( getting them out is easy ) as there is a way of ballsing it up that locks them in the legs forever. Simply take out and place in order the parts you remove to do it EXACTLY in reverse and the right way up when you put them back in.
As for weight, you're way inside the weight limit for them so no worries there.
You may have bottomed out because you've only pressurised one of the cartridges.
