Koni Settings - Advice?

Another Koni question - for those who've got them, what setting do you ride yours at? Do you have the same for both the front and rear?

I'd like to have a pretty firm setup to give good handling, but likely not the firmest settings, since it really is a daily driver.

Any suggestions on what has worked for you? I'm particularly interested in knowing if different front and rear settings is something that is good/bad to do.

You can adjust the front/rear differently to increase/decrease oversteer. i don't have Konis so I don't know how much adjustability they have but as far as ride - try some different setings to find what works for you.

no matter wat, do not put them on the highest setting. i did, and the ride was not even stiff enough. the switch ended up locking at the stiffest setting. koni rep said 2 things can happen, 1 i can use a plier and break it loose, or 2, it will snap off.

now my front shocks are leaking so koni's lifeteime warranty will cover it. just don't put them on the stiffest setting. they knew about the problem, just never told anyone.
