DO NOT RELEASE THE NITROGEN GAS IN THE RESERVOIR!! It is around 150lbs pressure and is not part of the shock tuning.

The compression adjustment is on the top of the shock. The rebound adjustment is at the bottom of the shock near the linkage.

Remove the rubber stopper with a small flat head screwdriver and you will find the compression dampening adjustment screw beneath.

^^^^That's for the forks^^^^^

Get on the left side of your bike, lay down and look the clevis at the bottom of the shock, about 1 1/2 inches above the bolt that connects the shock to the linkage. That's where the rebound adjuster is. If someone has messed around with the shock, they may have turned the bottom clevis around 180 degrees, making it hard to see the adjuster.
