Crane Creek DB limited travel

So I’ve taken all the air out to Seder my sag and now when I pump it up (with shock pump) it get it to 250psi but only getting about half the travel, like it’s stuck. Any ideas?

    Make sure the pump is fully screwed on to the valve to be sure you’re pumping the shock up and not just the hose. Confirm there is air in shock by releasing it again.

    I’m not familiar with db shocks but make sure lockouts are off and If it’s actually at 250psi and not extending, open the rebound a couple of clicks to see if it makes a difference.

    Thanks for the response @mully79 I should have mentioned it is a rear shock

    After every 50psi compress the shock a few times to equalise the +ive and -Ive pressures.
