How to adjust an old coilover
Now that I have some better front tires and proper wheel alignment, my car looses grip when the road becomes slippery. After investigating I learned that one of the front coilovers is too short.

The brand is K-Sport and while those can be bumpy, that only happens when it is cold weather. The tool to adjust the ride height is soft metal and not up to the job. The coilovers haven't been adjusted for several years now.

This is the K-Sport tool.

This is how I believe it should be applied.

This is a wrench I have borrowed somewhere.

My question is, I believe to loosen the ring to be able to adjust ride height is counter clockwise? The reason I am asking is that when I applied the wrench, the whole coilover rotated a little, like if the top three bolts had some slack, so that ring I wanted to loosen is acutally moving the whole coilover.
