Default Input on my current settings

90 chassis w/ about 200whp, tein flex w/out custom spring rates, superpro bushings, jr anti-sway's, butterfly brace, frog arms, roll bar, ppf brace, ul6's, and ra-1's.

Cars main purpose is autox. Now my height (fender to center of hub) is 12" front and 12 1/4" rear with 1 1/8" droop and compression front and 3/4" droop and compression rear. I put tiny zip ties on my shafts to see how much compression I was using and I am definitely into the bump stops. The car felt quite civilized for the entire drive so I am thinking some rough bumps put it into the stops but am not sure.

I don't want to be lifting tires this weekend so should I leave it with the current setup and see how it performs or should I take 1/2" front droop and 3/8" rear droop and make it compression?

Between 4" and 5" but my pinch welds are so fucked I didn't bother with them. I also had 150 lbs in the driver seat while setting everything up and was using a level on the subframes to try to get it as level as possible. I also made sure my garage floor was level while I was at it and I had the car sitting on 6" blocks so I could do the adjusting and measuring without having to **** with tires.

Measured and I am about 3.75" for the front pinches and about 4" for the back.
