    Just wondering, is it hard for yall to set the shocks at position 5? Manually that is, not with the incab controller. I don't have that yet but will shortly. Anyways, it is difficult for me to turn it to position 5, I can't even get it there.

    It's easy. Just get under and turn the knob with your fingers. The knob is not hard to turn.

    Mine seem to get harder to turn to 4 and 5, but if my hand(fingers) are clean, and so is the knob, its not that bad.
    Maybe only 30-50lbs./in. of torque needed to turn to 5.
    Good luck

    Mine are fairly easy as well....don't move them much. You can't go around the entire dial though. like if your on five you can't go just one click and be on one, you have to turn it though 5,4,3,2,1 to get there...know what I mean

    5 was tight for me, but after the first couple of times, it went right in. I have the in cab duel controller now, it works like a champ. Absolutly love it.

    Thanks guys, I was just wondering if mine were a defect or something. B/c I thought it was suppose to turn in 5 smooth, but I guess not. I can't wait for the incab controller though.

    Never had a problem. The in-cab controller is a nice feature, can't wait to get mine. I almost never adjust mine now because of having to get out, blah blah blah.
