For trails I'm running I think 19 clicks out (soft) on the compression, rebound is stock.
Shock is also almost all the way soft, forgot how many clicks out, but pretty much 1 less than full out I believe.
Works well for the trails. I weigh 205lbs without gear and the bike soaks up quite a bit of stuff.

I run a bit less sag than recommended, high speed compression is turned in about 1/4 turn, low speed is about middle and rebound just slow enough to handle pitching me off on big g-outs but it doesn't pack up. Weight is 170 pounds before gear, A level rider.

Front forks are raised about 4mm from stock.

On a related note, two of my rear linkage bearings were bone dry upon new-bike ride tear down. Others were just fine.
