Im not too familiar with pro4 terminology but you need to fiddle around with the droop screws unitl the droop is even on both sides. The bottom line is that a droop gauge is key, since you want to set it after the suspension is assembled.

As for the actual settings, you don't necessarily have to set the front to half the droop of the rear. Experiment and see what you like best when it comes to handling. It's a simple way to start making changes to your car's handling. So, I wouldn't focus too much on the specific droop setting, as you will definitely fiddle around with it.

Droop setting is very important !

1) Get that droop gauge as soon as possible.
2) Ensure all 4 shocks have the same length, when fully extended.
3) Set the downtravel at 2 mm all around.
4) Try the car.
5) Try reducing the droop at front to for example 1 mm.
6) Try the car.

This way you have a good starting piont. And you probably also have a good feeling of how droop settings impact the handling.

Two kind of droop settings, which is really bad: No droop and uneven droop.

By the way, I still race with a Pro2, nice car.
