Be careful how you go about dialing in anti-squat, because when you alter the side view inclinations of the LCAs you are also altering the axle roll steer effect. Generally, lowering the axle side pivots results in a shift toward, and possibly into, oversteer. There is a tiny roll center height change due to LCA orientation because the PHB or WL cannot lie precisely on the rear axle line.
With a 3-link, you can alter the A/S without screwing up the rollsteer by playing with the inclination of the upper. I'd (roughly) set the RC with the PHB/WL, then set the rollsteer with the LCAs and then tune the A/S with the UCA.
Ditto on the dampers - I have Illuminas on two other cars (little else above the OE replacement level being available), and they ride more harshly than they should for the control that they offer. I would expect that the same design team was involved with the entire Illumina line and that they would have continued to think inside the same box when it came time to do the valving for the aftermarket Fox pieces.
