Click on search button in top righ hand corner and search suspension 101. Full of all the answers you seek. Also there is a video by Keith Code on YouTube that shows you how to dial in your suspension.

Hope that helps

Dan spent many hours on this write up. He continues to answer questions within the thread as well. It's probably one if not the most valuable thread on this forum IMO. Have fun with it and try not to get frustrated.

In addition to the link, there are many youtube videos of Dave Moss demonstrating baseline setup info.
