    Coilover spanner tool

    What is the best tool for adjusting the preload nut on King coilers? Is there a special tool for the timing rings, or do I just use a chisel?

    I just ordered the EVO Long Arm Coilover kit for my JL, I think they are 2.5" coilovers if that makes a difference. I want to have something for initial setup & to keep in the jeep in case an adjustment needs to be made on the fly.

    Yeah King makes a tool. Flat head screwdriver and hammer on the rings. 1” above the slider in the front and 2” in the rear.

    Not sure on King, but on Fox coilovers I've always used a 5/16" punch; fits the holes perfectly, and for some applications it gives you more room to work with over a spanner wrench (i.e. coil bucket or remote res hose getting in the way). If I need more leverage, I put a wrench or tube or something on the end of the punch.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
