Installed Strange adjustables, how difficult to Adjust

Ok, so last night I installed the strange engineering adjustabe front struts.
I set them at 5 so the would more or less match stock performance and want to go to 2-3 when I go to the strip next. How hard is it to get under there and adjust them? I'm not lowered but it is still a BiT$4 to get a floor jack under the k member to raise the damn thing.
Is it possible to reach under there and change settings with out jacking it up.
Little help here!

Don't jack up the car or anything like that. Just turn the wheel all the way to one side and reach in and adjust. It's that easy. You'll see when you try it.

Hey, quick question - I have the same struts. Did you get a rattle going over bumps when you installed them? I get that and it gets worse when I turn up the firmness. Can't seem to track it down yet but I have a suspicion the upper strut mounts are bad. Bought all this stuff with a 1000 miles on it from another 2011 GT driver and can't figure this out

Struts

Put a couple hundred miles on it with them on and no noise.
When you installed did you run the top bolt all the way down before removing the spring compressor, if not the may not be all the way down and there is some slop there when the spring gets compressed on a bump.
Did the stock mounts come apart on you my pass side did But I got it all back together there are real small ball bearings between bathe two mount parts that may cause some problems

I found out it's a bad strut, the mounts are fine. The strut was torqued down fine. I ended up buying another set of struts from Strange and they'll arrive tomorrow. I'll put them in and chalk this up to an expensive mistake. Can't wait to get them in, the car will ride great once they're in
