[V8] Koni Sport Shocks-Settings

I installed mine as they came packaged (full soft, I suspect?).
Installed them along with H&R springs and 255-40/17 tires, and am super
pleased with the tautness and responsiveness of the suspension.   Little
to no lean and good predictability on medium-high speed bends (clover
leaf and s-turn freeway ramps, e.g.).  A tad harsh over sharp bumps, but
certainly not too much for general road conditions; I wouldn't say it's
any more firm than a late model S or RS car.

I have no intention of stiffening the shock adjustment, as like a little
comfort with my sportiness, and with road imperfections and undulations
as they are, stiffer doesn't always mean faster.

Just my $0.02 -- I'd be interested to hear other feedback and what you
ultimately decide to do as well
