Post KYB AGX initial settings?

I just purchased a set of KYB AGX's for my Eibach springs. I was curious as to the 'break in' settings I have heard about. What is recommended. I do a lot of in town driving and like the feel of the stock suspension. So I dont want an overdamped daily driver.. I can save that for my occasional trips to canyons and autocrosses

thanks

I started out with mine set at 2(f)/4(r) but have recently bumped them up to 3/5 and love it! Very nice rotation (I'm sure the 20mm rear bar, strut tower bars & the lower tie bar all help with this too!).

Ooops, I just noticed that I had them set at

11 ^front
18 |

during the break in period. They're at 2/4 now, & I think I'll definitely crank them up.

What spring rates are you guys using? I'm running 300/250.

2/4 will be fine to break them in at. Takes maybe 200 miles, less if they were stored upright before installation.

Some people went with 1/3 instead. I don't think it would matter much.

I went with 1/3 for the first week of driving. Then it's off to 2/4. I'm gonna try 2/5 and 3/5 in autoX later. But I want to see how 2/4 works first. Must improve the driver before touching with too many variables.
