In my recent rebuild of my TC3 I looked at my AE shocks........ they all still have rebound....all four have the same (near as damn it) resistance......I have built these shocks only once......when the car was new.

My car is a first batch Team edition (only even Factory team)......how long ago was that!!!!???!!!!

i dont agree with the shock design but that's the way I worked with them without probkem
But it is possible to get the shocks to rebound.......retract.....or do nothing!!!!

I build the shock with the shaft pushed all the way in and tighten the cap while still holding the shaft down. You dont need rebound in them..

Bladder shocks are definately easy... it's almost cheating

That method will definately get consistency...but I like my shocks to have rebound.....

When you eventually run EP...try foam and a couple of o rings on top of your bladders....you will feel the difference......

Can't say I notice much with GP....because you use "power" more to change directions.......
