How tight do you have them adjusted and what springs are you running with them? Did you play around with the adjustments at first or just set and go? and.... where did you get them and how much$$ I've seen them at
thanks for your info, Chris

I started both front and rear with 1/2 position, tightened the fronts a bit but felt the rears could be tighter so I turned them (the rears) to about 3/4. Then I adjust the front to about the same (maybe a bit more) with decent results. I can still adjust the fronts up a bit for "agressive" days and turn them down a bit for "less agressive" use.
I haven't set them at full tight b/c I hear that as they wear, people have a tendency to tighten them to compensate. Four years later, I haven't had that problem.
I am using stock springs.
