Bleeding (2) íV Shocks --

Refers to removing excess shock oil from the shocks during building. This is usually done by gently snugging the shock cap, compressing the shock shaft until the shock end touches the shock body (during this, excess oil should leak out around the cap), then fully tightening the shock cap. Ideally, the shaft should rebound to about 1/8 of it's total travel (without shock springs) once released. Make sure all shocks rebound equally (this can be checked with a shock matching tool or by measuring) to ensure your model isn't tweaked. Adjustments to the rebound length can be made by repeated bleeding (if the rebound is excessively off), or by screwing the shock end in or out on the shaft to make minor adjustments. Different types of shocks, such as: top load, bottom load, emulsion, and reservoir shocks may require different bleeding styles - check the manufacturers' guide for proper bleeding.
