Other than the spanner wrenches that come in your coilover kit we also recommend that you have some sort of small drift and hammer to help loosen and tighten the rear collars on the spring perch.

  11. Moving on to the rear adjustment which is a little trickier due to the limited working space. This is due to the S550 chassis being supported by an individual spring which is why the rear doesn't utilize a true coilover assembly. In order to easily rotate the collars, the weight of the car needs to be off of the spring. This is accomplished by dropping the IRS cradle.
