    On the left side on top of the resevior there is a small flathead screw......turning it in (t the right) stiffins it up, each click is a new setting, you can also adjust your spring collors a bit as well but that will affect your ride height

    increase the preload until the bike sags 2-3" in the rear with you on it...then turn your compression way back to all the way out. now ride and increase it by little bits until the action of the shock is not too stiff but not too plush.

    seems like it was a very vertical jump, if you adjust your shock for that type of jumping, you will be bouncing all over in normal trails

    Adjust your spring preload first and leave the compression in the middle and go ride. If it still bottoms easily then stiffen the compression. If that doesn't help then you will need a stiffer spring. You don't want to ride with your compression cranked all the way in.
