Is it possible to adjust the donohoe coilovers while they are installed? I've got the spanner wrench they gave me.

Getting ready to do them up right tonight.

Yup, thats how I adjusted mine. Basically you just jack up the front end and get the tires off the ground then adjust. Dont forget to loosen the allen screw.

Wouldn't hurt to spray some PB around the collar ahead of time.

X2 showstop: Also, don't forget to put some anti sieze on the set screw before you put it in, so it doesn't sieze up on you. That salt air in Virginia beach will corrode that puppy in no time, plus the aluminum VS steel galvanic corrosion will get you.

I had to use the dowell at the end of the handle when I did mine. I couldn't get the dowell on the curved head as I would hit the spindle without getting enough room to even turn it. I used the handle side and it worked, 1/4 turn at a time.

Large diameter phillips screwdriver works great too. That tool that hoe gives you is easy to bend.

they turned stiffly but not enough to bend it.Yeah the spindle hits and you got to spin the tool to the end to get more and repeat. Gonna put some antisieze on the set screw tomorrow after i keep trimming and get an alignment. I went with 285/75 toyot mt,deaver 9, regular hoes to max almost,and hoe shocks. Just gotta get an extentedBPV bracket on it and some other things.

Looks nice
