Best way to tune adjustable shocks?
So after a lot of messing around, i finally have my new Fox 2.5" DSC's installed and on the rig. I now need to start the process of tuning (i.e. adjustment via clickers) them to where i want them.
As i have no idea what Fox ships them as, nor is there a way to tell this as far as i can tell, wondering how others would suggest that i start on this. For those not familiar with the DSC system, per the website - here is what i have to work with:
"two adjuster knobs allows 10 separate low-speed and 12 high-speed compression levels"
For those who haven't been following my build and starting new on this, my original problem statement which has been evolving over time is that i was getting what i thought was the shocks blowing through the stroke and bottoming out when i was hitting bumps / air at speed (20ish MPH).
What we learned through a lot of trial and error is that this was only part of the problem, and I've had to do body trimming to get rid of the body tub smacking the tires as well. There is also is some thought that the bump stops are not set up correctly, but i wanted to get shocks installed and body done before i go down that road.
All details are located in build string, with cross reference to individual posts on each item in detail.
TIA for any / inputs as usual
