Need to borrow a spanner wrench please!!

So I threw on some icon shocks and uca's then my new tires. I had the tires on my old taco set at about 2.5-3" of lift and the icons come preloaded at 2" without a spanner. So I was wondering if a very nice person local to the Seattle/auburn area could help me out and let me borrow a wrench so I can drive my truck. The tires rub way to much and I can't hardly turn! I would only need it for a day and you can be there while I do it or I can return to your house when done. I'll even Pay a rental fee for your generosity!

Thanks for reading
Moe

I would recommend buying a screwdriver with the appropriate diameter shaft on it (#3 phillips for FOX CO's) and cutting the end off to substitute for a spanner. This has worked great for me and i actually prefer it over a spanner wrench because it gives you a lot more leverage and gets your hand out away from the UCA and coilover and everything else in the way. Just my .02, hope it helps...

Or you could just use a 1/4 inch punch, or whatever size it needs. 1/4 inch punch worked for my Walker Evans'
