Lightweight Suspension SetUp

Is there a "general rule of thumb" for setting rebound and compression dampening if your weight is less than the stock setup? The owner's manual says the stock oem springs and rebound/compression clicker settings are for a 176# rider. I weigh 145# with another 10# for gear and tool belt. I put a lighter spring on the shock (huge difference over stock) and am looking for direction to setup the rebound/compression clickers. I'm thinking less rebound and less compression for a lighter rider. I don't want to spend $$$ to get the forks and shock revalved, just want to get the best out of what I've got.
