Drilling the cap eliminates the rebounding action from shock's pressure and makes it rely completely on springs for rebound. That way w every adjustment u make on spring tension u see the expected result at most.. So shocks r not supposed to have the rebound u mentioned. There comes in drilling the hole.
I personally dont do it because my car has been fine on the track w other adjustment but certainly drilling wouldnt hurt at all if not better as far as u do it correctly. Especially if u compete at national/inernational level, i dont see see why u dont do it.
Thank you for the clarity and explanation.
