The key to any tuning method heavily relies on simulation and literature. Take this part out and the rest seems like "trial and error". 

I would suggest you model your car and run multiple simulations to arrive at a range of optimized coefficients for your shock. This range can be then tested on the car with some subjective feedback from the driver.
