Well I got a pair of koni's and im way to low. I want to raise it up at least an inch and a half. They provided me with 1 wrench. So i take my wheels off jack it up... It fits the bottom ring fine. But the top ring it doesnt fit the grooves. Am i supposed to have 2 wrenches? How do I raise it back up with the 1 wrench while its on my car?

The bottom ring is to secure the actual spring perch, which is the top ring, and quite a bit larger. It's hard to do, and will take you like 45minutes a side. You loosen the bottom ring, spin it down the threaded body, then wrench the top one (the spring perch) up to the desired height.

It will fit. Same size wrench for big and small rings. It just takes a while to get the hang of it.

Yeah and some bloody, greasy knuckles and wrench imprints in your palms.

Yeah I've honestly spent an hour just on one coilover. It goes up soooooo slowly. Is there anyway to make it go faster?

are you just screwing the rings up?? i got a set of spring compressors, compressed the springs the then screwed the rings up. its one more step but it made my life a lot easier!

^^^Good idea. Still, though. I think it's about a 64th of an inch in ride height per wrenching. Not per turn, but per stroke you can make without resetting the wrench.

I use a paint brush and clean off the threads with that. THen lube them up before I start. It helps a lot. Still takes time.

If you have a small strap use it to relieve some of the pressure where the spring binds on the perch.
