Im not 100% sure, but I believe my rears are in the middle. My fronts are 2 full turns away from the stiffest setting.

My optimal setting:

1.5 turns front
2.0 turns rear

I have played with several different settings and this is the best for normal daily driving. With this setting, the ride is softer than the ZSP stock suspension.

Hi JacobT,
turns are from the hardest or softest settings? Cheers

Right now I have mine set at 12 clicks from the hardest in the front and 10 clicks from the hardest setting in the rear. Since I just changed over to non-RFT's I'm going to adjust them a little stiffer. I'll probably try out 10 clicks from hardest in the front and 8 clicks from hardest in the rear this weekend.

Yes, turn clockwise all the way till it stops. That's the stiffest setting. Then turn it counter-clockwise to make it softer. Basically, 4 clicks makes a full turn, so 8 clicks = 2 turns.

Hope this explains the KW V2 setting's.
