That's what they had on them when I bought them.

However, my guess is that we'll be starting at 1100 on the front and play with the rear until we get it close (I'm guessing 600-650 on the rear).

We'll see....

Who setup/valved your shocks?

It's my understanding that the Ohlins are very generic in their "as delivered" state with the resolution of the adjustments being very fine. That they need to be essentially revalved to match your application to get them setup properly.

How did you get yours setup?

Mine was ordered new for my car from the main ÷hlins service center in Sweden.

Did they valve them specifically for your car? If so, what was the valving they used? Mine are coming off a cup car so I'll have to have them valved.

I was told, by a very reputable source, than they typically are a more generically ordered shock. That the adjustments are very fine, thus the range is small (compared to say a JRZ that has a far wider range of adjustment). So if they aren't pretty close in their valving, you can't get them setup properly.

It's got me a little concerned honestly, about the time it will take to get them setup.

I was not involved in this car at the time but I have some sort of spec sheet at home I will take a look at.
We have the same rear suspension so that should be pretty similar but I have a custom double a-arm front suspension so those numbers is probably not really comparable.

Didn't find any useful info on my setup. I've never heard about the ÷hlins having a narrow adjustment curve though?

Do you know the front and rear motion ratios for your new suspension setup?
