Preload: This is the amount of tension set in a spring before a load (the rider or braking force) is applied. Without it your bike would sag under its own weight, too much and the springs barely move.
Rebound damping: This controls how your springs 'bounce-back' or 'rebound' after being compressed. Without it your bike would bounce you out of the saddle over even the tiniest bumps.
Compression damping: This controls the speed that the springs compress under load, for example: braking, accelerating and hitting bumps. Too much compression damping and the ride is harsh and unforgiving, too little and the bike will pogo from end to end.
