You definitely do not want to just set everything to its stiffest.......
turning in all the preload
turning in all compression and rebound damping
All this will accomplish is an even worse ride comfort wise and even worse handling bike becasue you will skip over the track, pack down the suspension in ripples/wavy conditions and generally just ruin all handling of the bike......
Do the proper suspension measurements
and see where you are at
But even on a budget, if you can do it on your own competently..........
springs and oil vis change is maybe $135 front and changing just the spring in rear another $125
only then would I start worrying about damping rates and adjusting the compression and rebound dampening
You cannot fix a leg amputation bleed with just a small butterfly bandage and that is exactly what you would be trying just "setting everything to just the stiffest"
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
