You can't adjust the fronts. I was thinking about adjusting the rears, but I don't want to scrape any more than I already have.

Thanks Mike. I'm very happy with the results!

Here's the official height it settled to. Sorry for the quick crappy pics, but you get the idea. I would say the front settled to about 2", and the back went down 1.75".

Front, I can tightly fit two fingers between the fender and the tire:




Rear, I can comfortably fit three fingers between the fender and the tire:




Quick pic of the side before going to the shop:
