Tried to adjust the shock on my 2011 KP.
Could not break the lock nut loose no matter what I did.
Yes I had a spanner wrench from WD.
Sooooooo, I cut the spanner wrench in half to get a pry bar on it.
I got it to turn but both nuts turned.
The good news is they turned in the direction I wanted, counter clockwise.
This makes a softer ride according to the manual.
I am assuming seeing they are still stuck together they will not move on their own, correct?

...they shouldn't... 1 reason why they were atuck together could be the previous owner never had a spanner wrench and used a punch and hammer and malformed ther tabs so they are stuck... since you usex a snipe to get them to spin I would say your safe they won't move.

I only moved the nut a half turn softer.
Can't believe how much better it rides.
