^^Dude might not like female species.
If you want to adjust them because the ride is stiff, you would have to revalve them. If you want to adjust the height, spanner wrench.

She's in Virginia, maybe I should drive over and do it for her.

Per-Forum rules states we cannot, will not and shall not yell in threads unless it's a involuntary reaction to pictures of plasti-dipped Tacomas.

To adjust the stiffness you need to revalve, nothing to do with a spanner wrench. The spanner will lower the shock, which might cause tire rub issues depending on the lift height and tire size.

It is possible as long as you are not maxed out on the rest of the suspension geometry. Is it 4 wheel drive? Pics of everything up front would help. Also raising the shock will probably make the ride even stiffer.
