Go with the max setting. I just installed them this past Saturday and it sits a half inch high in the rear still even with 300lbs. of crap in the tool box. I started a thread that you can see a couple pics in. Buy some PB Blaster and soak all the bolts you can get to now, especially the big one at the bottom of the strut, at the sleave. No prob getting the nut off but the bolts on both sides were rusted/seized in the metal sleave in the bushing. It was an hour of hammer, lube, and a big impact working it back and forth getting it out. The single nut holding the top plate on was rusted up pretty bad too. Had to take a deburring tool and make flat spots on the oem strut to hold with a pipe wrench to get the nut off. As always, LUBE LUBE LUBE! Definitely will need a good coil spring compressor, broke the china made one, didn't break the blue point (snap on). Good Luck!
