Tool for lowering Tein springs?

Post by fastSRmedic on Tue Mar 16, 2010 11:39 pm

So I have Tein basic coilovers, and I want to lower them more but I can't find the little wrench used to loosen the lock rings on them. Anyone have one or have something that will work that I can borrow? I can't believe I lost that damn little thing haha Bash

Just buy some..Don't hack your shit. Guaranteed you'll get more pissed off using a screw driver, and when the collars come loose well, just buy them.

I think I'm just gonna cough up the cash for a new one. I was always taught to use the right tool for the job

Also, if I want to lower the ride height, I compress the spring more correct?
