Gen1 Suspension Help

So I bought an 04 10r used and it was lowered in the rear. The spring was cranked a ton and really dropped the rear. I was looking for the stock settings on what i should put the spring back at. Also im 5'8 and can barely touch the ground from where i tried to crank the spring back up. My buddy has an 05 and his spring is almost at the end of the threads. This didnt seem right to me but hes never changed it but did buy it used. Also what is stock for compression and rebound? I havent looked but im assuming they click like the forks? how many clicks out from fully tight is it? one more thing, if the rear is lowered and the front is not will that give me head shakes? ive been noticing a little shake even through my stabilizer
