Pinkbike Poll: How Many Suspension Adjustments Do You Actually Need?
@jaame: One thing to keep in mind is that slow speed rebound affects high speed rebound, but high speed rebound does not affect low speed rebound (the same is true on the compression side). Tune low speed rebound first, high speed rebound second. Getting the suspension to balance with the fork is the most important thing. Assuming your fork only has slow speed rebound adjustment, tune the fork rebound to where you like it, then tune the low speed rebound on your shock to match the fork. To tune only the slow speed rebound on the shock, pay attention to how it feel compared to the fork on things like pedaling movement, body weight shifts, and light compressions. Once the slow speed rebound is tuned on the shock, make the high speed rebound on the shock as fast as possible without feeling any kick/bucking on big compressions.

Yes because you need to be able to balance the rebound on the front and back of the bike. Without rebound adjustment the chance your dampers would be balanced during rebound is super unlikely.

Compression settings are damping (oil flow) adjustments, whereas volume spacers are a spring adjustment. Volume spacers will make your suspension stiffer as it moves through the travel, compression setting make the suspension stiffer as shaft velocity increases. In general, high speed hits make you go deeper in your travel so if you increase your spring progressiveness with volume spacers you may want to reduce your high speed compression damping slightly. The decreased high speed compression damping will better allow your wheel to move out of the way of small to medium sized square edge bumps, but your fork will still be able to resist bottoming on big hits because of the increased spring rate at the end of the travel.

Low speed rebound come in to play when your fork is rebounding from only a couple inches of travel. It will affect rebound on things like trail chatter, body movement and leaning, low compression berms, and pedaling.

Couple notes on oil viscosity vs temperature. Thinner oils are more temperature stable. Shocks are less effected since they run thin oils and heat up very quickly. Forks don't heat up like shocks do, even under heavy use, and they use thicker oils so they are much more affected by temperature. The only real solution for forks is to either have different setting for different temperatures, or use thinner oils at times of the year when the temperature is lower.

@jaame: High speed rebound movement is when the fork is rebounding from deep in its stroke. When your fork is deep in its stroke there is a lot of spring force pushing the fork lowers back into extension. That spring force pushes the fork to extend at high speed, so it is high speed rebound. When the fork is rebounding from only a couple inches into its fork's travel, there isn't much spring force pushing the fork lowers into extension. Because there isn't much force the fork lowers rebound slowly, so it is slow speed rebound. Put simply (and unlike the compression circuit) high speed rebound is ending stroke rebound, and slow speed rebound is beginning stroke rebound.
