What tool do I need to use to adjust my back shocks on my 2009 HS Aero? Any instructions? May be there is a link or You Tube out there.

Thx,

You need to turn the adjuster at the bottom of the spring. Some say they can adjust theirs by hand but most require a small spanner wrench. There are graduated steps around the circumference which increase/decrease spring preload. This is all stated on your owners manual if you have one. If not, I'd be for getting an owners AND a service manual.

you should be able to turn them by hand, if not a screw driver works. But the proper tool is called a spanner wrench. I was always able to do my aero's shocks by hand even up to the highest setting.

But the spanner looks like this.
