three way adjustable drag shock adjustment??

Ok so i ditched my air shocks and picked up a set of comp engineering drag shocks. My question is what would be the best setting for these for street application? My car has a straight axle under the front and it sits a little higher than the rear, not sure how this will play into the adjustment of the shock. I have comp engineering traction bars with new leafs I just installed. Any help would be appreciated as usual. Thanks alot Jon

Optimum settings would be based upon what you're doing with the car and/or determined by results at the track. What I did with my purely street driven, stock suspension car, is 90-10 for the front and 50-50 for the back. My thoughts were, allow for maximum weight transfer and maximum control of wheel hop for the rear, seems to work well.

Thanks for the info... I can always just do some trial and error to see what works best for my app. I'm sure all cars respond differently under different circumstances. I'm sure any setting will be better then those pos air shocks..
