Default associated big bores help

just put a set on,one of the shocks is spitting fluid out the hole in the cap.took it off,the fluid was only about 3 quarter full and the bladder was half way into the shock,so i refilled the shock,checked the bladder it was ok than i placed the bladder back in the cap it looked good,and once agian it is spitting fluid out.the others are fine,whats the deal? is it a bad bladder? do i need the bleeder screws in theses shocks? i was told i did not need the screws.i know some fluid should come out at first but it is spitting alot,enough to lower the level to 3 quaters.i have a 13x8 hole piston,i drilled 2 extra holes with a #55 bit and running 30 weight all round. thanks for the help.

Carefully check the bladder for tears/holes. It's probably damaged or bad. Replace it with a new one. You should keep spares on hand anyway, bladders wear out like anything else.

It is possible that the cap is to deep. It could be bottoming out before it seals the bladder. If that is the case you can simply grind the cap some so it is a bit shorter.
