While I would suggest a search for other possibly better answers I will tell you what works for me.
After full assembly and drilling the caps out with a 1mm hole.
1. Fill the shock with oil to about the top.
2. Bleed the air out by sliding the piston up and down while turning it slightly.
3. Let it sit for 15-20min (or use a pump if you have one) to get the air bubbles out of the oil.
4. Slide the piston to about the top without
the piston coming out of the oil and hold it there about 2-3mm below the rim, there needs to be room for the bladder.
5. Fill the body to the top with oil (kinda domed).
6. Set the bladder on top and work all the air bubbles out, I like RSD soft bladders myself because you can see through them.
7. Set the drilled cap onto the bladder and place the threaded retainer over that all while holding the piston from moving and tighten the threaded retainer down. Lots of oil will leak out so clean it up.
The shock should have zero or close to zero rebound. The stock bladders are harder to get zero with. Good luck.
