    Yea you can once they are adjusted you can use your fingers and turn the bar to fine adjust them.

    And trust me if they weren't stronger I wouldn't have gotten them.

    actually 2..
    first: do they come in different sizes? links plzz(preferably ebay )
    and two: do you have any issues clearing the body as your shock stroke goes up?

    Whell the ones for the upper front ones are the same as the ones in the rear and the lower turnbuckles are longer I think, I haven't ordered the lowers yet. Nope clearing issues they are just drop in they replace the stock ones. All you need to do is take the ends off of the stock ones and put them on the JD Carbon ones then size it and onece it is close to the size you think they should be you put them on and use your fingers to turn the carbon fiber rod. No tools needed to adjust them. Just be careful not to use vicescrips, or a vice or anything elts that grabs on the carbon fiber, or at least that is what they say, I think that they say it because it will crack the carbonfiber if you grip them too tight.

    whell I have seen some on e-bay but not lately, I would rather buy it from the jd carbon websight. Here is a link to all of there jato stuff..... http://www.jdcarbon.com/carbon-fiber/perrc/jato/
