I just raised my ride, where I can get almost one finger between the tire and wheel well on non RFT 18's with default KW settings. Its firm but with no harshness.
Thanks for all the advice- you guys rock!

I'm on 18" 162s and stock RFTs for now (new car, 5/08).

So if we voted on the cause of the aptly-named "Big BANG" front suspension bottoming of the XI, what is the consensus for cause between tires and suspension? 60% caused by RFT and 40% stock shocks?
