Agree to disagree, it depends on what you're looking to achieve. I tihnk contact shadowing is terrible in this game on max settings, objects don't feel grounded enough, close up show clothing without shadows and all. Using the unlocked console you can make the AO tighter and improve that in literrally 2 lines at a minimum performance cost. Epic: Epic+ "better" AO tweak: You can also change the shadow transition setting of spotlights (heavily used) to make spotlight shadows more defined for a longer distance. Don't have a screenshot of it right now but can be massive diff.
