    I'm wanting move the setting on my 5100's and was wondering if I needed to replace the top lock nut? Everything I have read says to but I don't know. If so what size is it?

    One more question. The stock spring have some colored paint on them. One side has blue and white and the other has green and white. Are they side specific or does it matter?

    This is why you do 1 side at a time. A, so you can see how it goes back together. And B, so you don't confuse side specific parts.
