Post Aldan coliovers - adjustment query

Before I get my ride on the road can anyone answer a simple question? - on Aldan coilovers do you wind the adjuster knobs clockwise or anti to stiffen the shock absorbing?
Many thanks, Limey

I have had a set of aldons fail on me in a few months, and when i went to have them rebuit the guys in the shop just wouldnt stop laughing over the internals in the shocks. (they saitd somthing about pop-rivets haveing no place in a high preformance shock absorber) cost me more to have them done right than buying a new set.

apparantly the adjusting screw is not adjusting the valving at all, its simply a bypass tube running past the damping valving in ther piston all together, so you propably wont feel much difference in rate when loosening it.
so i would tighten the screw all the way and drive with them till they failed, and get a set of QA1 or KONI when you buy new ones
