Help me adjust my KW coilovers for better handling.
 
I have KW coilovers and for some reason it seems that they don't handle as well as the springs only suspension that I had on my old car. The dampening is set at factory set medium on front and rear. Also, the tire pressure is set at 40/38 psi. What do you guys recommend?

Are you trying to minimize the bouncing?

Instead of going by medium or soft or hard setting on your shocks, you should set the rebound of the shocks to minimize the bounce. When the car bounces, it means the rebound isnt setup to work with the springs.

Before I post a load of physics, when you mentioned "they don't handle as well", can you elaborate on that? Does it happen during high or low speed cornering? Fast or slow bumps etc?

Through corners it just doesn't seem to grip as well has 328 did.
