Adjusting ride height - KONI YELLOW

I just put on my koni coilovers....koni yellow shock + red spring and now i just realize (cuz im an idiot) that i should have adjusted the levels...one side of the car is a little lower than the other...i went under the car and realized the two rings (that adjust ride height) are higher from one side than the other; causing the inconsistency in ride height

how do i adjust these rings? I got them used and the guy didnt have the tool for them.

any input would be appreciated

The need to be reoved first. You cannot adjust while they are installed.

The clamps are just C-clamps and can be removed with a pair of pliers. They might be rusty (mine were), so just be careful.

fack...u can't adjust the height while the shock is on the car?

is there no way to raise the car and adjust them while on there? i mean that will relieve some of the pressure on shocks?

I really doubt it. The clamp and spring perch are under pressure from the compressed spring.

There shouldn't be any pressure with that lowering spring ...if you jack it up and the spring is loose(like you can move it around alot with your hand ...go ahead
