Thanks!

So they aren't letting you adjust height? Or damper? The threads can frequently get dirt and grime on them, preventing them from turning. Try wiping down the threads before turning.

Try to turn it the other way for a few turns then wipe off the dirt and small rocks then try to turn it the way you're wanting it to go again

What makes you want to throw up lol

And I'm so glad I didn't have time o put my new lip on. My car ate a 18 wheeler tire in traffic today. Couldn't really do much about it but slam on brakes. It would have hit the hood if i didn't lay on the brakes

I've been thinking about going 19's next but I'm not sure since tires are pretty expensive
