DO NOT USE AN AIR GUN JOE.  (Remember they are vicious attack
tools which can whack you in the head leading to great embarassment.)

Seriously, they can affect the adjustment by spinning the shock's shaft.

Isn't it an allen wrench?  You can see from the top.

You turn them all the way loose (anti-clockwise) then turn them both
the same number of half turns.  There are no clicks.  Count how many
turns to the stop when loosening them.

When you push the shaft down, you'll feel it bottom out.  Keep pushing
while turning and you'll feel the adjustment mechanism engage.  Now
start counting turns anti-clockwise until it stops (full soft).

DO NOT USE AN AIR GUN to tighten the top nut or you'll mess up the adjustment.
