Im more concerned about getting the proper settings on the dpsecs for the springs.
When I had my Dspecs, the "best" adjustment really seemed to be a moving target, based upon what I was doing with the car (and my mood lol).

Although TIC says that 4 to 5 tffs was about the right dampening for their springs, I would turn them up much higher (~2 tffs) and was putting up better lap times in autox. The times may have been due to me driving better, but at the autox courses, 4 to 5 tffs felt too soft to me.

Then there were days that I was tired of bouncing around on city streets, and turned them down to 7 tffs...buttery smooth!

Granted I was on RCE Yellow's, which have pretty high spring rates (295 f and 275 r), right around 5tffs seemed to be a pretty good balance. I would guess that right around 5 tffs will be a pretty good balance for your springs, although you may choose to soften/firm up the dampening depending on where you're driving. That's the beauty of adjustable struts!
