instructions should say which is higher/lower, if not put them on 10 and run them see how they feel then put them on 1 youll be able to feel the difference

One the number 1 setting the shocks with extend easier and return slower...I don't know whether you are running them on the rear or front, but normally a lower setting for front and a higher setting for rear...Then just play until you hit the sweet spot.

Lefty loosey rightey tighty...... As you tighten them you'll notice the truck getting stiffer, as you loosen you'll notice it getting bouncy I start at 0 to the left and run it up to 6 or 7 for the street, when I adjust them at the track i usually end up around 6 on one side and 8 or 9 on the other but you should learn them for yourself.

Because the truck tries to twist to the passenger side, I always have better luck stiffening up the passenger side and running the driver side slightly looser in the back.

I usually set the fronts the same though.
