KYB shocks adjustment...

I've installed the KYB shocks recently, along with my new springs. My shop setted it to the stiffest setting (4), the ride is awesome, very firm and stable, but I'm now worried if it set it too stiff, the struts will not last too long, since my car is dropped 1 1/2 inch.
The guys that did the installation lost the adjusting knobs for the rear, but I knew before hand this happens very easily, so I dont blame them...

Am I over concerned or its something not to be worried about...can somebody give me a good estimate how long these will last if I kept it on setting 4 all around???

i did a search and too soft setting could cause the car to bottom out, and too stiff will shorten life of strut? anyone give me more info. on this>?

I got em also, Leave the rear set at 4 (stiffest) and run the front at 1 or 2.
