I'm a fan of 250 lbs/in in the front and 150 lbs/in at the rear location. Not bouncy and handles crappy roads well. This has been used for track days and drifting as well. If you go too low, it'll still scrape the mudflaps when cornering hard with 4 people in the car. So if you're going for the low look, I'd go 300 in the front and 175-200 in the rear if you want to carry any weight.

Great stuff! Much appreciated.

So what rate did you ask for when you ordered those inserts? With rear tourings I'd keep the rear rate at around 175 as Robert suggested.

What's the deal with S10 shocks in the rear?

Shock tuning never came up. I'll ask.
