loweirng 5100's

I am think of lowering my 5100;s down to the 1.25 or what ever the middle setting is. i have them at the highest for about a year now but it is freakin almost imposible to keep it alligned.

what i was wondering is are my springs going to be to compressed to lower to the lower setting? will i have to get new spring or am i good.

any help or advise will be much appreciated. thanks.

You can lower it down. Shouldn't have any issues. But I am suprised with the alignment issue. Maybe the alignment tabs that the cams push against are damaged.
