GEN 3 Tool kit

Where can I find the tool to adjust the rear spring on the Gen 3. My tool kit didn't come with one, I'm guessing Motion Pro may have one but just wanted to see what you guys have to say

Yah, With mine I modified an old screwdriver by grinding the end of it pretty blunt, then hammered the rings around with that

I did this also just temporarily till I tossed the POS stock shock and got a Penske. Just be careful though bc the rings are a pretty soft metal and you will dig into them pretty far before you realize it.

I bought a proper c spanner, but it was imposible to get the fuckin thing in there and turn the rings.. That was a waste of money!
