  The red Koni struts on my 914 were actually adjusted for stifness by 
rotating the piston.  I believe it was supposed to be either fully extended 
or compressed (one) to do this however.
  On an A1 you can impact the nut down unless you fine tune the slop 
in the bearing spacer.  Then fully impacting it can make the steering a 
little stiff so the nut needs to be backed off a tad. It IS a locking nut.
