    Measure the distance from the center of the front wheels to the fender.Need to be on level surface. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Turn the bolts till you get 1 in lift.Measure each side and should take aprox same number turns on each side.Thats the easieat way I know of.

    thanks. i figured that was the way to do it, but i was hoping someone knew 2 turns equaled 1" or something like that.
