Ok it's exactly as PaulW said:
-Clockwise = Harder
-Anticlockwise = Softer

These are TAS topmounts with spax coilovers, the nut on the VERY top is what you turn (8mm i think) and as said above clockwise slower rebound rate (bumpier), anti is faster rebound rate.

Here's a crappy pic if its any use....

ok lookin at the top of the strut then, there is a bit that sticks up on the middle - 2 flat sides, 2 curved - kinda like..

code:

not a good description I know, but thats the bit you turn anyways!

You can use a set of moleys to turn it, but be careful, its only a gentle click you feel so don't go too rough & if you turn them too far either way, it can naf up the adjusters & will cost about 30 per shock + delivery to be sorted by spax.

clockwise = stiffer ride
anti-clockwise = softer

front adjuster i think is only 10-point, as I know thats all mine would do, but rears were 27 click.

i have some spax rsx coilovers on my corsa b. when i got them second hand, they didn't have any adjusters on the top of them but i know that they are adjustable! how do i adjust the damping on them? i know it is something to do with the top of the strut in the engine bay but what do i do and which way do i turn them?

thanks
