  • Adjustable Dampening

    I have no clue how it works, my BC’s have it and I don’t know how to set them to all be equal before adjusting it and how I should go about doing so.

    Most of the time you set them to fully soft and then tighten up the dampening from there. Here is documentation for BC coilovers: http://www.ddmworks.com/assets/image...structions.pdf

      1st off: adjustable dampening just adjusts how wet your suspension gets.
      2nd off: it really depends on what you're adjusting. Are they primarily rebound or compression adjustments?

        See Carroll Smith's Tune to Win. Age old stuff for Double Adjustable shocks but still none better.

          And another one from Bob Tunnell. I used to build shocks for he and his wife's BMW's while at TrueChoice:

              By wet do you mean eventually blowing through the seals? I would have to look up to see if it is rebound or compression

                I mean that:
                To Dampen is to make more wet. A garden hose is a great dampener.
                To Damp is to reduce mechanical vibration. Shock absorbers are great dampers.

                  I can't like this post enough.
