Max stiffness on coilover shocks

Is this bad at all for the coilovers? It actually feels good and turns way better.
I have fortune auto 500, 13k/9k Swift springs.

I don't see how it could be bad, considering "full stiff" is an option. IMO, the higher the spring rate, the more you have to dial up the stiffness. Yours aren't that high, but I'm not sure about FA coilovers. If you like it at that setting, then keep it there, that's what it's for.

I have been running my Tein at "full stiff" for 13 years daily with no problems.

After 13 years, I finally got my IS300... and an ISF in the same week. Lexus Fam!
