Stock air shocks

Not sure what is the correct air pressure to run? I try to run about 22 psi but not sure what is too much. Also if riding 2 up when hitting some bad road I will hear what sounds like a "squishing" sound. Does this mean that the are bad and need replaced?

Mine is an 09. I never ride two up. I have mine at zero.
Book says Zero to 10. I dont think it matters where you set these kind of shocks.....they just need to be replaced with an aftermarket style.

You need to check the manual for your year. If I remember right 35 was max on my 07 RG unless you had the lower shocks then it was 50. You need to check. Putting 50 in the wrong ones will trash them.
That all changed with the 09's

Check your owners manual to see what is recommended or just play it by your comfort level

I bought it used and unfortunately do not have an owners manual. I know I need to let go of the cash, get off my dead "ars" and go get one.
