So when trying to remove the passenger shock, the allen head snapped off the top of the shaft and we had to clamp some vice-grips on the shaft and let the nut soak in PB Blaster while we attempted the driver's side. We were finally able to get it off with that method, unfortunate but we had to do it.

Also, adjusting the rear coil collars is a real PITA

gald i could help, after looking at the pics you post of the coilovers i figured you wouldnt need to adjust add any washers. it seems pretty flush on top. As for adjusting the rear it is a PITA lol.
