I thought you had to compress the shock and it would catch then you twist. That is a rough idea but I don't know an official procedure.

On mine (86) the front one are ajusted from the strut top (under the hood) with a special ''key'' (looks more like a bottle cap).

lol only two directions... That's for the dampening of the shocks. Are you talking about adjusting the springs? I will look in the FSM and see if it says the direction.

If you have the m474 koni sport factory struts and they dont have the little tab for the adjuster key (****) you hafta remove the spring and adjust the strut like you would a rear shock(compress and turn. this is according to koni.
