Adjusting "adjustable" coilovers?

I've had my Toytec lift on for about 9 months and was waiting until I got a plate bumper installed before I changed anything.

Stock I've got around 2 to 2.25 inches of lift and it measures about 22.25 from the hub center to the fender.

I got my spanner wrenches out yesterday afternoon so that I could bump it up another half inch or so now that I have a plate bumper install.

Am I just a puss or what? I couldn't budge the ring on those coilovers (wheel at full droop).

Do I need a cheater bar or some such? Or am I just not holding my tongue just right? What's the secret?

Here's what I'm dealing with for reference:

Remove the tires . Droop the suspension and use a cheater bar . I used my spanner wrench and hit on it with a mallet .

Ha, ha. In all honesty, I did look for one after a couple of feeble attempts at using just muscle.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Looks like I'm just going have to rig up some sort of cheater bar as recommended - just didn't realize it would take so much effort to make it move.
