Coilover Adjustment Issues

Hey guys, i just did my coilover conversion on my sport trac, no superlift, 2wd, running king 2.0 x 6.0 running 12" 600lb springs using rcd brackets to bolt them into place... not long travel. here is the issue I'm havng. I jacked the truck up to tighten the coil nut to lift the truck and even with a tool i can not turn that coil nut. is there any way to adjust them? they dont have spanner wrenches. tried to get some, but they dont even sell them? unbolt the spindle from the uca and let the suspension droop even further? take out the sway bar? or get shorter springs? even lift spindles? im kinda in a bind here and dont know what to do. its my dd, and i can't have it out much longer.

ORW sells spanner wrenches. You can use a punch, but you'll mess up the aluminum nuts.

It's not difficult at all. Just spray some WD-40 on the threads and turn the nuts.

Because the truck is bottomed out on the shock so the first thing I need to do is lift the truck so I can atleast get it road worthy

Here is the spanner wrench I would get..it's a "universal" type:

or here:

Both places are the same price and same product.
