NEED HELP WITH KONIS

I can't seem to adjust the back shocks. I already moved the little piece of metal so I can use the *** but it won't turn. Anybody have any advice to what I can do to adjust it.

Well they are set all the way soft from the factory, and it wont go anyfarther that way but it should turn the other way, my problem is I cant tell when to stop turning. Any way sounds like you better give Koni a call.

There is a piece of seat frame that is in the way of the ****, at least on the EX coupe. I need to know how to remove or bend that piece of metal.

As for adjustment it looks like there is a total of two full turns available. According to Koni, one adjustment is 180 degrees or half a turn. The softest setting is full clockwise, and you go counter clockwise to make them stiffer. You can tell how far you turned by watching where the little arrow on the **** starts out and where you stop. Two full turns should hit the stops.
