    Forget the guides. Ensure the spring is the right weight to get the sag you need. If it isnt get the correct spring. Once it is correct then fiddle yourself. Note down what you do, start with rebound. Get that right (not too fast so it wont pop you off into the bushes). If you can feel the change decide if its better or not. You many not feel the change.

    It can take ages, dont rush it. Learn from it.

    As above, just picked up a 2nd hand coil shock but have no idea on how to set it up.
    Its a Fox Van RC4 that been modified by Push Indutries so apart from the small matter of it being tuned for someone else (who is maybe I guess about 10kg less than me), how useful will the existing Fox Van RC4 guides be?
    Any help, the more graphical the better, is appreciatted.

    Cheers, had a little run out this weekend and seem to have it in a ‘sweet spot’ at the mo which doesn’t buck me off when riding over rocks/stairs but still keeps the back stiff enough to not affect climbing.
    Guess i need to try different types of terrain to fully get it right.
