I've done it that way as well with no success.... but I've finally got it with no rebound... well 2 with no and the other with probably 5- 10% rebound now. The alexander method took a little while but i got it

At the end of the day I'm still a newb even tho I'm about 3 yrs in 'tc racing' and have only had one chassis. So I'm still learning methods. Hopefully this new method helps me
