    Does anyone know if on can easily adjust the 5100 adjustable shocks after they have been install without completely removing them again?

    Thanks

    The adjustable 5100 fronts have a groove in the shock where a ring sits in. Then your perch rests on top of that. Spring is then compressed on top of that.

    You will have to completely disassemble the shock then reinstall everything after changing the height setting.

    Thanks, I had them installed yesterday and I had them set on the middle setting. I was curious, because I may want to bring them up to the top setting in the future, for a true 3/1 level. Just don't want to tear my entire front suspension apart again, just for one notch.

    Yeah. Its a pain in the ass and the compresser tool can be dangerous. You can add a spacer above the top hat if you do not want to disassemble.
