That is about where mine sits. When I drove it on the street I liked 5 clicks. Spinning the tires? as low as zero. Excessive wheel standing? As much as all 12 clicks. You will just have to find out what your car needs for the tracks in your area.

Nice butt! Not your's, is it?

Good luck, Ed

I run my car a little lower, rear is at 27, front is at about 26.5 I have a goofy spring on there that's not a standard qa1 spring, got them from someone that said they transferred alot of weight and liked to stand his cars up so he didn't run them, well they put my car on the bumper this year too LOL. Fixed it with travel limiers, now it leaves nice and low with no drama.

Anyway, track I like them at 3 n/a no limiters, 4 with the limiters and nitrous, 5 without the limiters and nitrous but the car didn't leave as good.
