    I was wondering if anyone knows of an easy way to tell what your front 5100s are set to. I bought the truck a few months ago and I thought the guy said 1.75 but he wasn't sure when I emailed him. Thanks

    So it's not the grooves that I can see at the bottom of the coil? I can see 1 groove on the top and one on the bottom. So I guess it wold be .85 or 1.75 if I'm looking at the right thing.

    From the bottom of the coilover, slide your finger up and feel the grooves under the seat. It already sounds like you are at 1.75 if you can see one on top of the seat.

    So I checked again and can only see the one on bottom and one on top. I am surprised at how shallow those grooves are. But I guess it works. Anyway, I am assuming that I am at 1.75 like you said since the one I cant see would have to be the second from the bottom. Thanks for the help and the welcome!
