    So I just got my 5100s in the mail. They are for a first gen. There are only three settings. I thought there were supposed to be four. I've heard of people running these at 0, .85", 1.75", and 2.5". Does anyone know what these three settings are on mine?

    I believe the 1.75 setting gives you 2.5"

    I believe not using the c clip would be "0" or no lift then you have the 3 preload options!

    This.

    There are three settings - .85", 1.75" and 2.5".

    I guess you could consider 0 as a setting, so that would make it four.

    OMG, really?

    1 - Don't you think the 1.75 setting would give you...1.75??
    2 - No c clip? How are you going to hold the spring seat on??
    3 - .85, 1.75 and 2.5 are all settings for 2nd gen's.

    OP, you have 3 options as a 1st gen:

    0" (WITH the c-clip on the lowest rung)
    1"-1.25" (jury is still out)
    2.5"
