this is my method that i use for both onroad and offroad shocks,
i measure the shaft length from bottom cap to top of ball ends, lets say its
10mm, i bring a fuel line or an antenna tube and start cutting them to specifis lengths using a cliper.
10mm= 100% rebound
7.5mm= 75% rebound
5mm = 50% rebound
2.5mm = 25% rebound
same thing goes for other values
8mm is 80%
4mm is 40% ... etc etc etc
then i build the shock and when the time comes to set the rebound, i put the plastic/fuel line between the bottom cap and the ball end and push the shaft untill the "rebound" piece stops the movement at the percentage you choose. you check the rebound and do it again if you dont have it right the first time, if you end up with less rebound than needed, refill shocks and start over.
does it make any sense to you?? it may sound complicated but its been working great with me.
