Need help with 5100s

Hi guys,
I have a shop install my 5100s in the front set @ 1.75 and I think it kinda still too low for me, so I decide that i want to set it @2.5 myself, but the thing is how do you remove the C-clip for the setting. Is there any special tool that you guys used? or is there a quick and easy way around this, what kind of tool and where can i get them. thanks guys for reading this and I will try to do it this weekend

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You need to remove them from the vehicle, compress and remove the spring, then you can use pliers to move the "C" clip to the desired setting.

Not trying to bag on you but I have a feeling that you're not very mechanically inclined. I'd hate to hear that a spring implanted itself in your face, take the spring to a shop and have them compress it.

just go back to the shop and tell them that you dont think its high enough and you want them at 2.5, that your sorry for the inconvienience, and that you were wondering if you could have a discount for not saying that the first time
