    suspension fork and airplanes

    I am planning to bring my mountain bike suspension fork from China, where I now live, back to the USA to have it re-valved over the xmas holiday.

    But, I've never flown suspension on an airplane. I would bleed off all the air and collapse the fork for transport. My question is whether or not it is required to drain the oil out of it.

    Anyone flown internationally with suspenion forks or shocks? What's the protocol?
