: Air leak test on shocks

I have an air leak and can not find it. Does anyone know a clever way to plug the air line off to test for leaks? Essentially I would like to remove a shock from the system to see if it will hold air. I have tried to spray soapy water and listen and feel for leaks but can't find anything. It is not the air compressor, as it was replaced. Thanks

You still have a leak in the shocks somewhere lift the rear end with a jack and see if there is a rear in a bladder

Im not sure I understand, im assuming you mean a tear in the bladder? I've checked and everything seems good, the compressor pumps up both bladders and i ut my hands around them and cant feel or hear anything but the truck slowly starts dropping and 30 seconds or so later the compressor kicks back on and lifts up again.

I meant a tear(phones auto-check messes up my typing sometimes)

But the exhaust valve may be sticking in the compressor causing the air to bleed out
