Those running Koni Sports with lowering springs

I will be rolling on TEIN S TECH springs. For daily driving/street, where should the Koni struts/shocks be set to? I have read one post which indicated 1/4 turn up from full soft. Would like to get the rears set correctly during instal since I understand that they need to be removed. Also, how are they set new/from the box? Thanks!

1 turn from soft. The adjustment range is 2.5 turns, and you don't want to start off completely soft and have no adjustment range left.

YMMV since what I like for DD might not be what you like.
