    Yes,

    Best bet is to adjust to 2.5 right away. Personally, I don't think it's that difficult to do...more tedious than anything else. It's a straight forward install and having the right tools at hand helps quite a bit.

    Any reason as to why you would go with the lower setting first as opposed to doing the full 2.5?

    Kind Regards,
    Ryan

    I would set it to 2.5 from the start (i have a toytec 2" AAL). i set it at 1.75 and wasn't happy with it, so i just adjusted it today. you do have to take it all apart and compress the spring. at 2.5, i'm about 1/2 taller in the rear. the only good thing was that it was super fast the second time around.
