Coilover settings question
 
i plan to get a set of SAGE coilover, taiwan product, seems ok for the price.
they have 32 clicks settings for the hardness of the shocks. I am wondering, i want a more aggressive cornering, how many clicks should i set the front and the rear?
some told me front 18, rear 16.
well.. to be honest. i am confused of what those clicks are for.

also, the reason why i change a set of coilovers is because my setting right now is very bad. It doesnt hold corners much at the rear. and when i am on highway, the car keep going left and right. its seems out of control.

will changing the suspension solve my problem???

and have anyone heard of SAGE, or ruff coilover before. should be better product then the raceland. haha

How long has it been since suspension bushings, especially FCABS and RTABS, were replaced? And the steering guibo?

I would check your suspension bushings before investing in a new suspension/coilover setup. You might end up investing money in the wrong parts and have the same stability issues.

The first thing that comes to mind regarding your stability issues are control arm bushings.

So about how old are the RTABs?

Alighnment? Your coilovers that you have now is most likely good. Check your bushings and control arms if they are bent or whatever. Most likely not your suspension.
