Default Gahhh!!! Shock oil keeps shooting out

Hey guys, need help really bad. I'm changing my shock oil right now, and all my other 3 shocks went through it fine. But, this one shock is really starting to piss me off. No matter what i do, it still gets air bubbles! I've even left it for 2 hours sitting! The shock oil i'm using is 30wt. Whenever i install it in my buggy, and just do some practice jumps with it. The shock oil of this shock keeps shooting out like crazy. I've lost like half of my shock oil. Any ideas on how to get rid of these stinkin bubbles? Thanks.

Sounds like a bad seal to me. Check your o rings and bladders.
