guys this really isn't hard to do by yourself. just have a friend take measurements and adjust the shock/forks. As far as the rebound I turn all the way till it stops then give it a full turn opposite

I highly recommend you buy or steal Keith Code's Twist of the Wrist Vol2. Not only does it teach you some excellent riding skills it goes over how to properly set your own suspension.

I'm all about having a shop do it but if you happen to go on a ride and get into some roads, or happen to have extra gear on, it can make a night a day difference. My ideal settings are pretty hard and great for highway/houston roads. But out around my house where it's constantly bumps and gravel it doesn't work so well. Add on to that sometimes it's just me, and sometimes it's me with 50 pounds of tools and audio gear on my back, plus 2 saddle bags with 20-30 pounds more of gear and cables. Knowing your bike and being able to stop, change the suspension in 5 mins, and then back on the road will not only save you seat material (puckers) it could actually save your life. All it really takes is a nice afternoon of riding, stop, change preload one direction, ride, back other direction, ride, change rebound, ride, change rebound other direction. Once you've done it a few times you'll be able to tell while riding what needs to be tighter or looser (damping, rebound, preload).
