Re: 954 suspension set up
rear ride height is one aspect of set-up, and I don't want to drone on about stuff you probably already know but its really important to start with the basics, set your sag (30 - 35mm up front and 25 - 30mm rear) before worrying about ride height, then start thinking about damping positions.
My 954 is set-up with a WP4618 rear shock that has around 12 - 15mm ride height adjustment, which I have set to about as high as it can go.
The front end has K-Tech 0.95kg race springs which are unfortunately a little light for me (I couldn't get the 1.05s I was after) so I have to crank the pre-load up tight.
I also have the damping set fairly heavy as I like to be able to feel exactly what is going on with my tyres - especially the front.
You don't mention what tyres you're running (180 or 190 rear for instance ?), or what adjustability your bike has (after market shock etc), but I'd be happy to help with some base line settings etc if you want them.
