KW Clubsport Owners

Just wanted to know what everyone with clubsports have their settings at? I just installed my suspension about a week ago and was wondering what a good setting is for daily driving? i'm not to familiar with the whole compression and rebound but i am learning the more i am reading.

The bump dial on the bottom of the strut is this for the compression, Rebound, or something else? i'm a little confused?

Also for some input...the way my car is set up at full throttle i almost feel like the rear of the car is dragging and it doesn't feel as fast. Has anyone ever felt this also?

Thanks for any help!

I just left the bump setting factory and adjusted the rebound setting at the top to 3 front and back, feels very stock like, very comfortable for daily driving.

bump = compression = bottom of KW strut/shock
droop = rebound = top of KW strut/shock

I would simply leave it at KW's recommended settings for street driving if your car is not heavily modified.

Bump: 6 clicks all around
Droop: 6F 9R

Always adjust by turning to full hard (clockwise looking at the face of adjuster) and then rotate counterclockwise.

Does this need to be adjusted based on low (or high) your car's sitting?

I can back Richard. Drive with recommended then adjust from there for the street. I needed softer setup for the street, so I run now the following:
Bump: 9 clicks from full hard
Rebound: 9 F, 11 R

I maintained respective balance to whats recommended, but it feels more comfortable on the street. I am happy with what I got now
