    Coilover adjustment question

    Right am trying everything to get the adjusters to budge but to no avail have cleaned up the tread and soaked in wd40 and even tried putting a breaker bar on the end of the adjusting tool but they won't budge any ideas?

    Do the adjusters have a grub screw on them? If so have you loosened them?

    Yea they weeds greased but by the previous owner, also when attempting to do it the car had the wheels of and was sitting on axel stands.

    I think I'm going to hold out for a few more days and get my friend that owns a garage to adjust them, or may just keep it as it is and cut away some of the inner arch as it does look awesome that low and I don't have problems with speed bumps either
