How to adjust Kyb agx shocks?
I've had the kyb agx gas shocks for a while and havent changed the settings at all yet. The shocks didnt come w/ instructions, so im not sure how to change them. I know it came w/ a little flat-head screwdriver, and it has something to do w/ the bolt on top, just wanna know what im doing before I mess anything up. Also, is 3f, 4r the best for the drag strip?

you just turn the knob on the side or the dial on the top with the screw driver it came with. the instructions say that the 4 setting is close to stock ride quality. if you were doing autocross i'd say go for 2 or 3 up front and 2 in the rear. just depends on how you want it to feel.

I have it set at 3/2 right now. And I thought 4 would be the stiffest setting? When I looked at the struts, I dont remember seeing any numbers so how would I be able to tell what setting I'm putting it on?

make sure you push DOWN on the top of the knob before adjusting the stiffness

Front you use the screwdriver, rear you push the knob down adn turn it.
There should be a dot or a stripe to indicate what setting you have it on.

Right now I have front 3, rear 2.
Running Eibach Pro. I have the feeling it is a little oversteered now though, that means I'd have to stiffen te front, or loosen the rear.

What springs and settings do yoiu guys have?

so let me get this straight, the softer the setting the more comfortable the ride and the stiffer the setting the better the Performance?
