Default BC Coils - Damper settings

Hey Guys...

Currently getting my Coilovers installed now and just chasing feedback from those who have had them...

What Damper Setting did you guys run? Im thinking start mid range at 15 F/R and working back?

You've got to be careful with coils that have "30" clicks of adjustment as each individual setting isn't necessarily doing anything. Set them somewhere in the middle of the range, get your ride height sorted and get an alignment done, and then do as you were

As a note:
Try to avoid going full hard or full soft as at full hard the piston that is actuated inside the shock will usually be entirely closed, thus trapping the oil inside the chambers and while driving if the oil is not allowed to move around as it likes, it could blow out the seals on the shock. Opposite that, if the shock is set to full soft, the shock is flooded with said oil and won't be able to properly rebound which could also cause damage.

I have BC's and run the opposite of Claw. Mine are full soft. Front rides great back hits the bumps a little hard. I need to adjust them to see if it changed that in the rear.
