Learn to ride it, then see if it is pushing the front end, or knifing.
sorry for my ignorance but what knifing means?

If you are trying to rail an outside berm, and your bike is set to tight, it will not lay in the berm, it will knife to the inside, not good!

Well I'm no professional but it really depends on the terrain. For example too little sag will put more weight on the front end and in sand that's NO good, you want to float over the sand. more sag is better for sand. Now harder stuff you want less sag so you can get more weight on the front. But it will cause the forks to react different. More weight on the front may cause head shake and harsh Ok I don't ride woods, only MX but I run 9-10 psi in my rear and 11 psi in my front. And 100hrs on my bike with the stock tube, so take that for what its worth.
