    Has anyone adjusted the ride height on their AVO rear coilovers that DMC currently sells? Is it as simple as getting a spanner tool and rotating the bottom collar?

    Hi there, I have. It's better if you compress the spring a bit to relieve pressure on the collar. That way, you don't need a spanner.

    Thanks! Good to know. How about without having to compress the springs? I'd like to avoid using spring compressors. I would probably only be changing the height about half an inch, so not a lot.

    It kind of defeats the purpose of adjustablity a little if you feel the need to compress the springs. But I will agree it makes it easier.
    You can certainly adjust them just with a spanner. Coilover type shock/spring assemblies are very common in many other automotive crowds and it does not cause any problems.
