    I turned my springs down to 2 1/4" rides great!

    I have my compression set at 6 clicks all the way around and rebound at 5. For me personally that’s where I felt the best ride for mildly rocky terrain.

    Clark Starr would be the one to ask here. Obviously you lighten up the spring load to much you lose a lot clearance on these so you got to split it up between soft ride and clearance. Its set off rider weight , weight you carry in cargo area , pass weight so wont be same for everyone
