    Shadow: Sorry for the delayed response - I just saw your message. My front end is still silent. No rattling at all. I'd probably start with the sway bar & end links. That's usually the first thing to rattle on the front. The steering is alittle light but that's because I haven't adjusted the castor yet (and I may not - I like the wheel to return to center and the increased castor assists in that). The castor change doesn't prematurely wear parts so I may just leave it.

    It all depends on what you want to hear.

    Me, I prefer sound quality over sound level so I would be on the high side of most frequency adjustments but low on the volume control and bass level knobs.

    The hardest part is finding the sweet spot between the two volume controls (head unit and EQ). I was usually between about 1/8th and 1/4 turn on the EQ volume knob and would primarily use the head unit control from there. As an example, if I had 6 or 7 bars showing in the head unit volume display, it was cranking. Turn the EQ down a bit and I could go to 8 or 9 bars. Not sure that makes any sense but not sure how else to explain it.

    I would start with the volume control. Set the head unit volume at say, one fourth, dial up the EQ volume until you find a spot you like and go from there.

    After that, the frequencies are just a matter of personal preference.

    Hope that helps on some level.

    I keep them at 65 psi almost all the time because I'm too lazy to reduce pressure after towing. When I do take the time, I run the tires at about 53 psi and the ride is a bit nicer.
