Here is a comp and rebound stack out of a customers "high end" coilover that was speced specifically for his car. What are yalls thoughts? Seems light on both comp and rebound.

And by light I mean relatively, and measurements were taken with a dying HF set of calipers so excuse the inaccuracies

Take a straight edge and see if the shim surface on the piston is flat or dished. Street cars run a lower motion ratio, if it's a light car, valving might be good.

Will do. The cars are around 2800 and McPherson fronts with the shocks mounted right off the hub in the rear. So that makes sense.

Noticed they used a flutter on rebound? Also, it seemed like they had an initial fluter on comp then another further up the stack.. any idea on what purpose this would serve?
