ok maybe I shoulda asked if it makes any difference in the real world..I haven't touched mine and have no idea what its set to.

Would you normally set it back to standard and work from there?..if so what are the standard settings?...

There is not really a standard setting. Its all about your weight and riding style. The settings in the book will give you a usable starting point that can be tweaked to suit the rider.
Basically if your heavy like me you may need more spring pre-load to maintain travel or if your a light weight you may need less to maintain sag. Adjust damping after the pre-load so you can bounce the bike and it returns but dont oscillate.
There are usually good setup guides on YouTube.
And the answer to you first question is yes, good setup makes a noticeable difference.

If it aint sharp I can play with it

Hi there I have got the wp suspension shock and fork books out

Fork rebound damping
10 clicks back for hard setting
14 clicks back for standard setting
20 clicks back for soft setting

Fork compression damping
10 clicks back for hard
14 clicks back for standard
20 clicks back for soft

Shock settings
Compression
Standard setting 3 on a scale of 1 to 7

Rebound
Standard setting 5-6 on a scale of 1 to 11

Spring preload depending on weight of rider/ ride height and total sag

Hope this is of some help
keep the faith
