In Episode 20 of Season Two, Jordi breaks down a shock valve assembly and explains the basic purpose of valves (shims).
For the very basic, on compression, you have your compression ports and you have that first valve. All that's happening is, as the shock moves, oil is going through these holes and pushing against this little piece of metal.That's most of what creates damping. So, the more of these valves you put on there, the more damping you're going to build.-Jordi
