still a little confused on LR tie down for wingless. Does this ADD more weight to this wheel during entry or no?

Here is a snipet from my "Shocks a Mystery no More" article on the website.

If we add more rebound dampening force to a shock on a particular corner of a car it will cause that corner of the car to have less weight on it when that shock is in the rebound state.

Conversely, if we reduce rebound it will place more weight on that corner when in rebound. This is fact and is documented in every notable shock book. Yes, this means when you add rebound dampening force to your left rear shock, it is going to give the car less left rear weight.

Think in corners, here. For example, when adding rebound to the left front, add left rear-right front weight when the left front shock is in the rebound state. This will tighten the car in the lateral considerations, but may loosen the car for longitudinal acceleration due to the fact that it is going to keep the CGH lower. Go through these thought processes when making a change. It is rarely straight forward, one change will have many consequences.

More compression dampening force of a shock will cause that corner of the car to have more weight on it while that corner is in the compression state. Less compression will place less weight on that corner when it is in compression.

so more tie down (shock moving slower) adds weight to that corner.... I'm just having problems grasping rebound and compression. I have a single adjustable pro shock.

More rebound takes weight off that corner when the shock is traveling in the rebound state (when the shock is extending). the Rebound dampening doesn't do anything when the shock is in the compression state.

More LR rebound makes the LR have less weight on it.

More LR compression will add weight to the LR.

Bar size depends on arm length. What kind of car do you have? Do you know the arm length?
