    I want to try out different shock settings on my Roadster Sport. Is it something I can do on my own without going to garage or Tesla service center? Can I reach the shock adjusting knots without the car lifted? Thanks!

    You can just reach underneath the car and get at the adjustment knobs. Its hard to see the numbers, but you can turn them all one way and just count the clicks back for same adjustment on each.

    May I ask roughly where the knobs are? Both front & rear are reachable? Thanks!

    The knobs are on the bottom an inch above the bolts that attaches it to the control arm. They are the blue part in the picture. You can feel the grooved knob if you reach around to the bottom of the shock.

    Wonderful! So I guess I just try to turn all 4 of them all the way clockwise or anti-clockwise to see which way is the firmest or softest, and then adjust from there, right? What settings do you have? I was told by the Service Centre that it's 6 front 7 rear at the moment, and I found it a bit harsh.
