Adjusting the 5100's

2009 Double Cab sport. Getting the TSB Leaf Spring added this week.

I want to level/lift the truck a bit and will add 5100's on all sides. I plan to set the fronts to 1.75" initially.

How difficult is it to change to the 2.5" setting? I know the coil needs compressed to install...would it need to be removed and compressed again to change settings?

I may want to add a slight lift once I'm ready for bigger tires and want to know if I should do it all right now.

if the 5100's are already on the coils.....you will need to have them compressed and move the clip.
