I am rebuilding my shocks and no matter what i do i always get air bubbles in them...any suggestions on how to get them out would help

well.. fill the shock up about 3/4 full.. then let it sit 5 minutes
pump the shock one way, like 1/2way up...
wait a few minutes, then pump it back down.
fill the shock all the way to the top, after the air bubbles have surfaced, then gently put the rubber bladder on top, which will push out some oil, but it can be wiped off...
then screw the shock cap onto the shock, but dont overtighten it as it could un-seat the bladder
this is what i do and it works every time...
