I have preloaded my springs some as no preload lets the car bottom out too much. The only trouble now is that the shocks don't have internal bump stops so if the suspension drops into a hole, there is usually a very solid thud when it runs out of travel.
I want to say my front is at .75" preload and rear is 1-1.25. I do feel that my shocks have way too little dampening for the springs they ship with.
What's the fun in making something simple?
