So, tonight I finally tackled adjusting those coilovers... I was going to do it on Thursday, when I had some help, but I was starting to get a little paranoid about blowing a CV joint. I've heard days or months... So, I went to O'Reilly's got the last couple of tools that I needed (borrowed someone elses last time) and did it myself.
Took me about 2 hours (would have been a little easier and faster with someone else) but I adjusted the coilovers down just over a half inch (which should translate into 1" lower). As soon as I torqued everything down, put the tires back on and lowered the truck off the jacks, I measured it and it was EXACTLY THE SAME!!!
I drove it around the block and it appears to have gone down almost 3/4". I'm gonna check it again when I get to work tomorrow and see if it's settled anymore. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to take it apart again and adjust more!
In order to get the coilover off, I had to take the ball joint of the UCA off the spindle which I wasn't planning on - so I practically had to take the whole damn thing apart!
Anyway, I'll keep you updated.
