Putting my new 5100s on Saturday...curious question. The shocks come with the 4 levels machined into them and from what I have read, with stock rear and the 5100s in the number 2 slot, I get "close but not quite" to level, but in the number 3 slot, the front will be a bit higher than the rear. Has anyone considered having another slot machined into the shocks at the number "2.5" slot?

It does not seem like much of a difference on the shock itself, but evidently that little bit of space between the slots equates to more lift.

Just something to ponder...
