Thumbs up

Ultra -
More kickup will give you less entry ("off power") steering and more exit ("on power") steering.
Less kick up is the opposite.
Having less kick up will free the front suspension of the car in the bumps and tend to give the front more bite when the suspension loads. This can make the car a handfull and seem twitchy in some cases. Hince the reason most people say more kickup is better in the bumps.
Hope this helps,
TEX
