Does anybody know if it's possible to pump shocks up without a shock pump? I don't have one right now, and I was wondering if there was a quick trick to get in there? Any help would be great!

IMHO, if you had a very accurate gauge on an air compressor you could use an air compressor. Or could connect the aircompressor and adjust the gauge to the desired pressure.
If you are asking about using just an air pump, you would not know what pressure is in the shock and run the risk of overpressuring it.
It's well worht the $$$$ to buy the shock pump.
