fitting adjustable fork valves?

Rate on the top out springs isn't critical. 5twins posted a suggestion on alternative springs awhile ago; send him a PM if he doesn't chime in here. But if you haven't removed the damper rods you won't be able to tell if the top out springs are present or not; they fit on the shaft of the damper rod and aren't visible until the rods are removed, so they may be there.
What do the damper rods look like in a 79? i would like to know before i buy my dampers from Mikes.
