what tokico settings do you use?

I just got my 5-way adjustables in and was trying to get some ideas of settings to try out? Anyone find their personal favorite?

I have adj KYB's, not Toks, but it'll depend on your spring rates mostly. Also, on your "butt tolerance," #/potholes per mile, etc.

If you're talking for the street I'd start with softest all the way around and go from there. I've had mine for a year-and-a-half and still tweak them occasionally for the street.

Play with the settings and use what you like. That's what I did. 4 front, 3 rear is what I used most of the time.

Mustangs are notorious for understeer. Neutral steering or slight understeer provides the most stable handling. Setting the fronts softer than the rears should reduce understeer. In use, I usually use 2 at all four corners on the street, and 5 at all four corners on the track. As my track experience increases I will try different settings to try to balance the car's handling.

Be a little careful with the soft front/hard rear to balance the car out. I tried that once on the track. Snap oversteer and a big whoop-dee-doo off the track. The car was real squirrelly.
It doesn't take much. Of course, every car will be a bit different depending on the set up.
