    There should be a rubber o-ring on the shaft of your air shock, you just need enough pressure so that the shock sags around 1/4 of the full stroke....

    You might be able to find more info here too:

    You might start by pumping it up to your weight in psi (165 psi) and see how much it sags from there.
