Koni Yellow setting.

Just installed the Koni yellow on my car. Wondering what's the best stiffness setting to fit my H&R SuperSport springs? I like cruising in canyon road and occasionally track it. thanks in advance guys!

Stiffening the front shocks would make the car understeer more, softening the front shocks would make the car oversteer more, stiffening the rear shocks would make the car oversteer and softening the rear would make the car understeer. So basically stiffening one end of a car takes grip away from that end, while softening one end of a car adds grip to that end. Softer shocks provide more grip. So you want soft in the rear and stiffer up front.

If you go through canyons you will want stiffer shock settings because stiff suspension reduces body roll in corners which permits more rapid direction changes. Might want to try full soft in rear or 1 click from full soft in rear and full stiff in front for canyons and turns. It might take a couple tries to get the settings just right also get sway bars they will help massively with twisties and wider tires in the rear for more grip.

A stiffer front, softer rear, and wider rear tires?...That sounds like a recipe for terminal understeer.

In regards to handling, dampers are ultimately just a fine tuning tool for transient behaviors, while springs and sways are the primary tuning tool fot steady state characteristics. For street cars, focusing on simply tuning the damping to the springs for ride control is going to be a good general starting point.
