    i recently had a lift put on my truck with 5100s front and rear. the front is adjustable and is sitting a tad lower than the rear. i have the two wrenches needed but dont kno which one to use first. do i have to jack the truck up to get the wheel off the ground?

    You have to jack the truck up, take the wheel off, then take the front shock assembly off to adjust the 5100s, since the 5100's adjust ability comes from the seating of the coil perch on the 5100's rings.

    Someone with more mech prowess will hit this up, but thats my .02

    dont need a spanner wrench. take everything out then you have your 5100 and coil 2gether. then you have to take spring compressors compress the coil, then take off the top plate bolts. pull out the strut and there is the spring plate. just take needle nose pliers and put the little clip thingy lol at the notch you want it at.
