Hi, that is actually very common in the automotive world. Most of the factory shocks on Fords, that I know of and have owned, have very little dampening on the down stroke for a softer ride and more dampening on the up stroke to prevent more than one and a half oscillations per bounce or bump in the road. I prefer to have the shocks dampen in both directions because my vehicles tend to bottom out on some dips.
