OK I decided to tinker with my hardtail mtb's front suspension rebound. However it only has one adjustment knob for one side at the top of the stanchion. So how am I to adjust for the other side? Am I missing something here?

It's a SF-M2000N by SunTour which I am sure it's no top end stuff.

The rebound and compression fluid (and adjustment) is only in one fork leg. It only needs to be in one since the legs pretty much have to move together anyway. It wouldn't add anything (except weight) to have both sides independently adjust.
