If you rebuild one you have to make sure it'll be even on the other side. I'd take the one from the other side that works, and either redo both or match the first to the second. You can take the springs off the good one and then push in the shock shaft and check how far it rebounds with the shock upside-down. Then fill the other shock and check how far it goes. if it goes farther, just dab a little oil out. If it goes less, add a few drops more. The shafts should slowly move out until they go between 3/4 and all the way out. There should not be any major resistance when pushing in the piston slowly either though. If there is it's overfilled.
(i.e. the piston doesn't feel easy to push in and rebounds quickly when the shock is upside-down)
