    Did your coilovers not come with the tool to rotate the adjustment collar?

    I think this is the consensus when it comes to adjusting coilovers without the wrench. I'd even say is more of the norm now b/c it's just easier.

    I'm sure the $5 harbor freight punch set will get you going.

    They're different companies. SSO is Baton Rouge LA and SOS is in Laurens, SC close to Greenville. I got my sliders at SOS and drove up to get them and saved on shipping.

    Yeah, it was mostly a joke. The names and the bumpers are pretty similar and I get them confused constantly.

    I used a combination of the tool included and then a 1/4 drive socket on a hand tool to get to the tight spots

    A couple of reasons. One, the execution on the 1G and 2G are by far better than 3G. I just simply don't care for it.

    Second is the bumper purchase is a good ways off, I need to address these mall tires before I ever have a need to winch.

    I also want to get some new wheels too, so it's going to be a hot minute. Just realized I've spent over $1000 on this truck in seven weeks. :spending:

    And it's a lot of stuff most people would find mundane.

    Use this - https://www.harborfreight.com/hand-...s/5-piece-long-drive-pin-punch-set-93111.html

    Worked great for the ~5 times I've had to adjust my Fox shocks. Jack up the truck so no weight's on the suspension, blast the threads on the collar with pb blaster, let it sit for a bit, then put the punch fully in and crank it. After a few uses the punch that fits will bend, so just toss it and get a new one when that happens.

    Yup, just don't use it too much after it starts to bend, or use one that isn't big enough. I used one i had which was a bit too loose and it started to bend the edge on Kings.
