There is only one adjustable spring/shock combo in that fork. Only racing forks have the dual independant sides and some of these are adjustable only on one side regardless. Its mostly cosmetic and really serves no purpose. You should be just fine adjusting the damping on that one dial but you may not notice any appreciable difference no matter where you set it.
