    depends on use.

    DH is 30% stroke of shock.

    Trails is less.

    I measure by eye to eye. Or by sliding the stopper to the beggining of stroke and guessing. I also just ride it and see how it feels.

    Kind of basic answer. Hope it helps.

    20 to 30% of the stroke.

    Most shocks don't recommend more than two turns on the preload. If you need more, then you probably need a stiffer spring.
