When I got the shock back, I was not able to set the initial sag, since the spring had lost about a quarter-inch of its length.
Maybe some good advice here:

There are very few folks who do enough rebuilds to actually become knowledgeable about what they are doing. Save yourself time and trouble. Unless you know with certainty that you are dealing with a knowledgeable rebuilder just deal with Ohlins direct.
