Help with 5100 install. Simple question

Ok I just got the 5100s outta the box for my 07. I slid the little round clip that goes in the grooves of the shock to the 2.5 setting. Now how do I fasten the spring seat (or whatever its called) to the 2.5 setting? Do I just need to slide the seat over the top of the clip and push until it pops into place? The directions I have aren't clear. Thanks

I just installed mine. Just slide the ring into the top groove (for 2.5" lift) an the spring seat just slides down and sits on top of that. Easy, simple.

That is all you have to do. Move the spring clip to the desired height. Then slide the spring seat down over the shock till it rest on the spring clip. It should rotate freely. Make sure you have the spring seat going in the right direction. The instructions shows you the right way.
