Full soft front and full hard rear. No trial. No Error. Just a great handling 5th Gen.

Perhaps I'm not wording my question properly.

The question is based on the fact that both bars are each 3-way adjustable. I'm assuming the full soft front and full hard rear is the "starting point" and the most common setup (and most likely where I'll be happiest). But say I'm not quite happy with the setup and want to tighten or loosen it a bit (ie using the other 2 adjustment points of the bars), how would I adjust it if I want to change the amount of understeer from there? Or is this just something I'll have to revisit once I get them installed?

Full Soft Front and Full Hard Rear = Maximum Available Oversteer Bias
Full Hard Front and Full Soft Rear = Maximum Available Understeer Bias

with the 27/27 setup full soft front and full hard rear is most likely where you'll want to be.

Update:

Just over 1 year later I have finally been able to purchase and install:
Prothane steering rack bushing
Prothane radius rod inserts
Pedders subframe inserts (installed this time last year)
Pfadt sport sway bars & endlinks

At this point I have no idea how it handles, as I finished my install a few hours ago and unfortunately I am looking at 2" of new snow outside. Hopefully the roads will clear up enough to let me drive around a little tomorrow, but the temps will still be to low to really open it up. Hopefully soon though...
