I use the Ride Air Suction Pump. It basically sucks all the air out of the shock. I believe they are still available from horizon hobbies.
Just follow the instructions and take your time!

Just take your time and follow the directions in the manual. Make sure you let them sit for a while with the oil in them. Pump them every 10 min or so do this a few times and all the air will be out. Make sure you fill the cap as well up to the threads. If its done right the first time you screw the caps on the shock will not go in at all. Then loosen the cap till a little oil can be pumped out. Do this just until the shock goes in all the way. After thats done Stand all of the shocks upside down on a flat surface and depress them and release them all at the same time. What your doing is finding the slowest one. Take that one, and thats the one you set the others to. One at a time bleed a very little oil out of each one till it matches the speed of the one you kept out. They then should all be perfect and consistant. The only other important thing is that they are perfectly equal in length. Thats how I did it anyhow.
