Default Shock Tuning

So I decided that while I was putting on my new softer springs on the crest that I'd reoil them and make sure all is well. So I take them apart one at a time and oil and bleed them as per the instructions on axials web site. When I was done all the shocks acted different. I picked the two that were most similar (after full compression there was about 1/2" of rebound, smooth operation). The other two, one was a little rough and the other there was no rebound. I changed no parts, only took them apart, reoiled and bled them. This time one had so much internal pressure that it popped the cap while testing it and the other was pretty close to the first two.

No real question just an observation for other newbs like me. Make sure that you assemble your shocks exactly the same. Even minute differences in bleeding your shocks will create very different outcomes in their performance.
