Hi all

Had my Fks on and adjusted right down which is great - but I'm orf to France tomorrow with a trailer full of furniture - I've adjusted the front and raised them 1 1/2 " but I can't get the adjustment spanner on the rears - there isn't enough room - is there a trick or am I being particularly thick in this ice cold miserable morning? :cool:

I'd go bk to a warm bed and pontificate!

Also the curves of a good women normally help to reset the brain lol

On a more technical not have u tried jacking up the chassis to get more clearance? Don't know if this will help?

Hi dude - if only! The birds at work whilst I prep!

No jacking won't work as the adjustment ratchet bit is flush with the bottom of the chassis...its like you need a smaller ratchet tool to fit in there...

You need to jack up both sides. Take lower bolts of the dampers and the arm will drop right Down taking the load of the springs. Should be able to turn them pretty easy then. I never managed to turn adjuster with any load on it on any of mine. Sounds a bit long winded but makes it pretty easy then.
