    kyb-abx adjustment

    I just went from 5 in the front and 6 in the back to 7 in the front and 4 in the back. Way better ! It feels like its on rails now and the rear traction got a bit better.

    try softening the rear another one, as long as it dampens, withouth oscillation, softer is better... the key is as long as it doesn't oscillate when hitting potholes/bumps.
    you want critically damped, when possible.

    Those are adjustment settings on the shocks, aftermarket, not stock.

    True, but having the front on 7 and the rear on 3 !, Sounds wrong !

    I image that even on setting one it is still better than a stockers dampening effect.

    I think I'm running 6 up front and 5 in the rear. I can't remember though. You'll really bounce like a ricer if they are not set high enough.

    That's a lack of damping control....
