Suspension Tuning?

I've got an 04 F6 EFI. After changing my track, i reattached the rear suspension to the lower bracket below the tunnel. I understand that i am to adjust front suspension to accommodate the new config but i have no idea exactly what is to be adjusted or how it much to adjust it.

Can somebody shed some light? Keep in mind i'm a bit of a tool when it comes to mechanical stuff.

Thanks.

Lengthen your front limiter straps so more of the track touches the floor.

thanks, they don't have any holes so should i just pre-drill an extra inch or so?

Also, is there a guide somewhere for setting up the front sway bar suspension to my height and weight (6'1" 225lbs)? The previous owner was half my size so i assume i should be adjusting them so they don't bottom out. I just don't know the proper way to compress the springs and adjust the shock.

thanks again.

Yes I drilled my own holes at 1in..........I also weigh 225lbs....Ended up buying sno-pro springs all around and having shocks revalved for my weight.
