Ok, I drew a diagram. If you loosen the tension nut untill you can remove the spring from the cable, the aluminum end cap on the tension asymbly will come out as in diagram. As you can see in the before drawing the eyelet that the spring connects to that adjusts will only adjusted till fully seated on the jam nut at the end of the eyelet. If you remove this nut and drill out aluminum collar so the eyelet can travel into the collar plus install a spacer that will fit over the eyelet end so the tension nut can be tighten all the way till the eyelet is flush with the aluminum collar. This added about .75 inch more adjustment on my v-ride. Helps enough so I can lift by myself will the 2 racks, and bimini on the tower. Modify with tower up. Hardest part is getting to the tensioner nut. I removed the 2 carpeted panels behind the rear seat in the storage compartments to make is easier. Let me know if this helps.
