With rebound built in: when you have the springs off the shocks, and you compress the piston into the shock body and release it, it will push itself back out, depending on how much rebound you build into the shock..this give you more 'pop' of of jumps.

Zero rebound has a neutral feel but may lack the pop that some are after. It all depends on what you like and the track you run on.

Glad i found this, I'v been wondering what rebound is for some time now. I'v always built my shocks with 100% rebound cuz i thought that was how it was supposed to be.

I try to use full rebound on my shocks on my truggy because if you try to set it at less rebound, theres a chance you will get air bubbles inside the shock . I run it like that on every track i go to.

And running full rebound i did notice no extra air gets inside the shock.

Then go and cut a piece of fuel tubing this length, as well as add a long cut up the side of the tubing so it opens wide.

Once your shock is at the stage where it's ready to be bleed, simpily put on this piece of fuel tubing and slide the shock shaft up so that the tubing is the spacer between the top and bottom of the shock shaft.

This will bleed make bleeding the left and right shock to the exact same rebound very simple.

Remember, some models of vehicles have different shock length on front vs back so if your running 50% rebound all around on your vehicle, you will need one spacer for the front and a different spacer for the rear.

Hope this helps.

Nice tip. I added rebound the other night and had a fit getting them set the same. Next time will be easier.
