#2 try this. it shouldnt take all that long. for your first time it will probably take 1 1/2 hours or so. take your time and pay attention to how things come apart so when you put them back together they go back right. hope this helps. good luck. :thumbsup:

If you check first, you will most likely find out you don't need an adjustment, anyway.
