I think I might be a bit underdamped... I run softer setting than many people with lower rate springs anyway.

But if I try to go much more than another turn stiffer I have trouble with the rear end bounding up over bumps and skipping, and I also have trouble finding a good ratio between front and rear and I get a lot of pitching back and forth on wavey highways.

I'm about to take it all apart and install Bakemono camber/caster plates all around. I had thought about going to softer springs, too, but they seem fine as long as I don't set the dampers too stiff.

I didn't see many people in this thread running springs around 300 lbs/in, and the few that were seemed to have awfully stiff settings dialed in on the D-Specs.
