    Hey guys! I was just out and about, and noticed that my front seemed like it had a lean. I went to an empty parking lot to measure my front and rear. And sure enough my passenger front is about 1/2" lower...:mad:

    So I guess Im ganna try to adjust it, but they've been on for about 6-7 months, and I know its ganna be a bitch! So whats the best way to do this, should I just spray the crap out of the threads with PB or something? i just dont want to have to take it in to a shop... Thanks!

    You can do it yourself, hope you still have the spanner wrenches. This is how I did it:

    -put truck on jacks
    -remove wheel
    -remove the swaybar link (one nut w/ 17mm head)
    -maybe spray WD40 on the threads (I didn't do this, but will try it next time)
    -hold back on the small notched ring at the bottom of the shock
    -for raising the pass. side, turn the large notched collar from your left to your right about until you see 1/4" more thread below this same collar (use a breaker bar)

    re-install everything and you should be good. This isn't easy but it beats paying someone to do it.

    same shit as everyone else
    did my girl friends last week, we just jacked the front end to get max extension, sprayed pro lube on it and adjusted. ALso the day before i sprayed the hell outta them with pro lube to help break the seal. Be careful though as i've heard many ppl bend and break there spanner wrenches trying to do this without it on jacks or lube

    I just adjusted mine down about 1". It's pretty easy going down but I'd imagine going up is a different story...good luck!
