Factory Suspension Settings

They were all screwed up! Rebound was supposed to be 10 clicks out, was 9 clicks out both sides. Compression was supposed to be 12 clicks out, but was 11 clicks out on one side and 6 clicks out on the other!
In the end, I set everything 2 clicks softer than stock, 12 clicks on top and 14 on the bottom---much better right off the bat! Front end feel more planted and less inclined to slide out.
Bottom line, even if you don't want to mess with factory settings, you should check to make sure they are right. I am sure with a 5 click difference in my compression damping, my front end was not working anyway near how it is supposed too!

Your complaints sound just like mine, and softening the front, especially compression (bottom adjusters) really helped.
