Why does the suspension look like i drove over a rock?

I fully understand that a double adj shock are much more tunable then what i have.....But this is what i can afford for now.
So what your saying is that i need to leave my new shock in the 50/50 position just like the MP drag shock is set up like(not adjustable.
In my mind if i had it in the 30/70 setting it would soften up the hit more then if i had it at 50/50 right? so there would be less of a need for the stiffer compression..........am i thinking thru this correct???
