does anyone out there know where to use the key for my KW suspensions to soften up it ride.

there is something in the whole where my strut bar goes that goes to the shocks its a little twisting knob.......

all i wanna do is just soften the ride up a little i understand its a sport suspension which is suppose to ride hard but it must be able to be softened up a little

the car is lowered the front tires are 235 35 19

and the backs are 265 30 19

You can change the damping, but it's not really going to improve the ride because the spring rates are fixed. If anything, I'd probably turn the damping up--it might actually help. Nothing worse than a damper that's too soft for the spring.

Not necessarily true... You will notice a slightly less stiff ride if you turn it down even if you just have V2's and you can only adjust rebound which still makes it a bit more comfortable. I've done so on my V2's and I notice a huge difference in ride comfort when turned down.

Good point... V1's don't have any adjustments, only V2's and V3's.
