Pre-load spring adjustment.

Bit of a rookie question here but I was wondering if there's a special tool required to adjust the rear spring on my 97' SP. I was able to loosen the first ring but the second ring is horrendously difficult to spin. Is there a special tool or trick? Thanks for the help.

Yes, A shock spanner wrench is what you need. They are about 8 bucks. If it's really rusted on you may need to take the shock off and hit it with some WD40. If you need one I can help you out-Ken

I have heard that "some people" have also used a screw driver and hammer on their shiny shocks! Not me of course!!
