For the front:
I know the spring should not be able to wobble if the suspension has no load on it. I called LG to confirm this and they said as long as the spring has at least 1 thread of compression on it I should be good. Problem is I honestly don't like the massive 2 inch gap between the tire and the fender.
How do you correctly lower the front? and adjust stiffness?
For the rear:
I know there are 12 settings. I assume turning the **** all the way to the left is 1 and to the right is 12 is that correct?
Thank you for any input.
The ride height is adjustable independently of the spring pre-load on the GT2's. You can thread the shock body (bottom portion of the shock) farther into the lower threaded cup to lower the car. Once you get the ride height set where you want it, you'll have to adjust the pre-load on the spring using the collar. I find it's best to just be able to turn the spring when the suspension is in droop.
Regarding the adjustments to shocks, right (clockwise) will stiffen the shock and counter clockwise will soften it. I usually start with the rear 2 clicks stiffer than the front and adjust from there.
For drag racing I always set the rear close to full firm and the front close to full soft so it would allow the car to transfer weight and plant the rear tires.
