adjusting QA-1 double adjustable shocks

I'm working on adjusting some QA-1 double adjustable shocks. I would like to set it up for quick weight transfer (front end up quick) and slow to come back down. Which way do I adjust the knobs? I had the compression in the middle and the rebound all the way counter clockwise, which I thought was the lowest and the front end was very slow to come up. Basically I'm not sure whick way to adjust the comp and rebound to get what I want.

Re: adjusting QA-1 double adjustable shocks

Sounds like you are doing it right. Rebound should be full soft. I think the DA's have twice the click adjustments of a single adjustable QA1, if so, then I'd set bump at 8 to 10.

Check my web page for First Gen Camaro suspension info:
