It's all personal preference at the end of the day, but to see the best improvement I would recommend the stiffest setting .

You can always back it off at a later date.

Hardest setting on the rear one for me.

My suspension mods are the same as yours other than I run buddyclub rsd coilovers and im full polybushed and mine rides the roads nicer than when it was oem and can take the corners and round abouts a hell of alot quicker than I could before as I use the same stretch of road/corners to compare the changes I make to see if it's improved or not.

Hardest setting is the best setting by far on the FN2 rear. Why reduce the benefit & improvement available by using any of the other settings? Would be like fitting the very best tyres and not running the correct pressures!

Which tower brace are you using, is it the Ultra Racing one?

I disagree!

For me the stiffest setting was far too hard, it felt like the car was reluctant to change direction.

Yep, I can't see that making a difference though.

Check aliment of wheels after fitting. Can be different.

Please explain to me how a fixed rear beam can 'lose alignment' after fitting a metal rod that limits body roll.

Did you check your alignment before? If something is out to much stiffness of arb can demonstrate the problem.
Fixed rear beam can lose alignment. I think condition of shock absorbent can do it. You can check it on adjustable one.

On Hunter machine even different pressure on tyres can give you variable readings. My readings have changed after fitting bilstein and rarb 0.5 on the back(camber).

Ok is not easy adjustable but If you have different settings on your suspension you will be having the same readings from the same machine?

warb settings

had a white line arb fitted by ABP last week. the car feels much faster round roundabouts now,. what worries me slightly is on the hardest setting will this induse too much oversteer ? which can be lethal on wet country bends. been reading loads of reviews covering all makes of cars and oversteer is a problem on the hardest setting it seems.has any one tested their car on all four settings?slight understeer is not a bad thing lol.

I ran different settings on my FN2 and found the hardest setting to be my favourite by far. On any dry road the improvement was massive and I personally would prefer an oversteer situation to any understeer issue as simple adjustment of steering can sort it. The only time when a softer setting would be 'better' is if you ran the car on a very wet track day but at this point tyre pressures also play a big part.

Standard tyre pressures + road use = hardest setting is best in my opinion.
