Take the time, make the measurements, fiddle with it, see what the adjustments do.

Preload or sag is for weight. Once its set, just work with the rebound. Make adjustments when the load or riding conditions change.

For example more rebound damping is needed when going 80 mph than 45. Get a feel for it and become one with your bike.
