IMO, you are way overdamped, not optimum, with that setting on your front
Konis, even with your higher rate than stock springs.  Don't go more than
1/4 turn more than Koni's starting recomendation for stock springs.  For the
rear, start with the Koni recommendation for stock, even if you have bastard
spring rates.  Suspension damping does not alter under/over steer suspension
