      So as title says I spun my coils up due to axle problems, and now I got that all fixed and now the coils are stuck, all the way up I was wondering what's the best way to get these things to move?... I have drenched the coils in pb blaster and have been trying the whole chisel and hammer and that's just chewing up my collars to much. I was going the just loosen the top and releieve the pressure from them

      dont heat them up. heated up nitrogen is no good for the valves of the shock. just get your wrench and a dead blow and go to town. just be careful
