5 degrees forward and 10-15 degrees inward good starting place

Straight up and down parallel with the shock for maximum dampening. Anytime you lay the shock down, it takes away its efficiency.

For example: 20 degree laydown reduces the
dampening force approx 13-15%.

You can use this to your advantage however.
If the car is a little tight off and you had the RR shock laying over 20-25 degrees, you could stand it up to help free up the car on exit of the corner. You could call me at

hope this helps.
