Help adjusting Bilstein 5100s

Does anyone know how to move the circlip on these shocks?! I've received mine on the 1.75" setting and need to get them adjusted to the stock setting....

Any help would be much appreciated as this is the only thing holding up my installation.

I think I just grabbed mine with some needle nose and slid one side of the clip down at a time. I think they are pretty tough, don't think you will break one.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

You should be able to pull the C clip out with your fingers. It just slides/pops off.
