Springs or damper issue

On my set of coilover, I use to set the damper stiff.
Now that I soften them up and find more grip.
the first day I soften them, it feel a bit floating or bounce.
After a few run on that day, I parked the car for a week.

Now it's the second time I drive the car, the damper seems to have stiffen up abit. But I have not touch the setup.

no idea why

This is a Damper issue. What you are experiencing is heat, when the shocks get warmer inside and out they become softer feeling. When you come back to your car later, especially if it's a cool morning, it will feel like someone stiffened your shocks up for you while you were sleeping. Once they get warmer, they will feel softer again.

That's reasonable.
I ask my frd who also got bc, he got the same issue.
Is this just for coilover?
It's sucks that everytime when is set a sweet spot, the next time it needs to be adjaut again.
