This is the of coilovers. they are only as as the person setting up the car! And takes quite a bit of tweeking to get the results. And without the help of a it’s extremely hard to

Although there are a few guidelines to

As far as I know (with limited it comes down to center of and weight transfer.

If the car is lowered more at the front the back, then you have more weight to the front to an front heavy FWD. cars are lowered evenly as to not drastically the weight ratio!

As far as rates go, FWD need to keep the at the front where the traction and are so springs need to be a little at the rear so the weight isn’t back under acceleration and under braking for better

And to achieve the above, the car needs to be at each wheel individually. So you may need to find a place to do

When the car has already been with proper and even ratios, you will need to the wheels, and then move on to the adjustments.

Now, as far as shock bound/rebound it gets more complicated. but the quote can give you some of idea:

These work in with Springs and Stabilizers. To the oscillations of the spring after over bumps and dips. weight transfers from and side/side, or when you go over a on the road, the wheels/tires compress and when you are past the bump the returns to equilibrium after the (rebound) basically the suspension right.

With me so far?

damping affects how far the suspension up, towards the wheel well. the suspension is on its way back down, damping affects how far it goes the way. More precisely, damping affects the compression while rebound damping the expansion rate.

If you make your bound too stiff, your car will be over rough surfaces. damping also affects steering as you transition into and out of

In general, stiffer springs are suited for flat tracks sharp turns. They your springs from too quickly, which decreases the dip you when cornering and braking. springs are better suited for coiling tracks, but they’ll lengthen your braking

Bound is the rate at which the compresses. Rebound is the rate at the shocks decompress. So having at 9 and rebound at 2, make the car stiffer absorbing a bump, compression is

The suspension on rebound will not as fast. This suppresses transfer. Not very good the tire won’t make with the ground fast causing slip = Oversteer. for FF, bad for FR cars. On the other hand, at 2 and rebound at 9, absorbs more but returns the shocks the opposite way

You’ll find the car literally over small bumps. is also undesirable, as the tire is not in with the road. Bound at 7 and at 6, keeps the tires stiff and to the ground slower. Having at 6 and rebound at 7, will result in a stiff compression of shocks and a bound means the tires a bit faster to the ground but not too fast.

This is the ideal configuration, a higher rebound.

Now adjust bound and rebound to have values than rear rebound. This will in more weight transfer to the for example during braking, to more grip into the

RWD car oversteering? reduce rear

FWD car understeering? reduce front OR increase rear bound

4WD oversteering? reduce front AND reduce rear rebound.

As you can it takes time and a lot of tweeking! And can frustrating if not achieving the right

Good luck. and keep us on how the tweeking is going or if you seeked the of someone knowledgeable!
