Rebound shims are shown above the piston; compression shims are shown below. Swapping shims for something either thicker or thinner will change the valving characteristics of the shock and thus change the ride that you'll feel over rough terrain. Sway-A-Way uses different valving for the 4Runner and the Sequoia, so the valving was changed during the reconfiguration.
