The factory adjuster is the bolt on the side of the rear shock and has 5 positions. Turn the bolt clockwise to increase the preload/ride height. Continue to turn past the #5 setting there will be a bang(normal) and you will be back at the #1 setting. You can raise the ride height more than an inch by going from #1 to the #5 setting. It is easier to adjust with the rear wheel off the ground but is dooable when on the ground. On the bottom of the shock there is a slotted screw. This is the rebound dampening adjustment. Turn the screw in fully then out one turn. This is the starting setting. In for more rebound dampening, out for less. A little trial and error is in order to see what does what and how you like it.
