actually be set up for standard springs? Is that so?
How can I tell?
I guess another question comes to mind now also. Since
the Koni's are adjustable, how should they be adjusted
for stock springs. Right now, I assume they are at max
stiffness. At least that is what it feels like.
I like the lowered ride, but since it screws up the
camber, it is eating tires. That is one reason I
wanted to try putting it back to stock settings.
Thanks again for the input.
