    I just installed the Allpro rear long travel expedition spring and fox shocks w/piggyback res. My question is: what is the best setting for the shocks for daily driving, it has a blue dial with 8 settings. It is currently set on #1. I'm new to the extreme suspesion setups so I'm not sure.

    Congrats on the shocks..best bang for your buck..

    Depending on whats in your bed..otherwise just leave them as they are..

    Or a great test is to go find a parking lot with speed bumps and roll over it at a comfortable speed..it if hits too hard turn up one click..

    Repeat as needed..

    Good luck..

    You might want to rotate those shocks a little. Those piggyback elbows are pretty close to your shock cup. People have hit and cracked theirs in the past just like that.

    I cut the shit out of my shock cups to clear the elbows. Do that at your own risk though.
