As you're aware, the top adjuster is for rebound and the bottom one (under the leg) is for compression. Essentially, when the oil moves through the shim stacks it is also moving through a bleed hole. This is duplicitous behavior! So you are in charge of how big that 'bleed-off' is. When adjusting the clickers, remember that it's a guide to how the shim stacks are. So if we go to extremes with the clickers, a change in the shim stack is called for. When all is finally 'right' we should be working in the middle area of the 30 clicks. Around 10 to 18 clicks would be right.
