    Well. No luck yet adjusting the front shocks.

    Will these help me with the adjustment or should I just rent a spring compressor? Lock nut won’t budge!

    They would but have you tried a flathead screwdriver and a hammer?

    Oh. Yeah. I was able to loosen the top lock but with the hammer. The bottom one is what I was having trouble with.

    I just re read the responses and think I understand now. Going to strap down the springs while the x3 is on the ground with the springs compressed THEN jack it up. Makes more sense now. Hopefully the stock spanner wrench works using this method.

    With the car off the ground using your hands grab the main lower spring and just spin the whole thing. As dunefreak mentioned make sure the threads are clean or it makes it 10xs harder.

    You will find that it’s easier to start with Megas recommendations rather than working through all the other options until you finally end up using his recommendation in the end any way- just saying
