Dampers is The Absorbers. There's so many design in the market, from Leaf Type for trucks, Air-Type, Oil-Type, Half-Air-Half-Oil Type, or the one with Canister mostly used in Rally Cars (Which absorb the most Impacts). There's also a Type they fix Vertically for cars like F1, LMP or some concept cars; come with a revolutionary Damper that minimising the need of Springs just to save number of parts being used; mainly to save overall weight. I don't know how GT6 define all that into 10 Clicks of Setting, but all type of Dampers works for the same Purpose. The common theory is; 1. Front Compression should be Harder/Higher than Front Extension; if u r driving with Late Braking. (unlike what's advised by the standard GT6 Damper Note) 2. Rear Compression should be Softer/Lower than Rear Extension; so it's stablizing quickly under accelerating. Like a Rally Car jumping up a hills, and landing just smoothly and immidiately accellerating without much bounching. Ideally is; 4/3 3/4 However; even in the real world, Driver compatibility is important (Arguable, Yes) Basicall; do whatever u want.
