    Spax RSX coilovers adjustments

    A while ago I installed Spax RSX coilover on my smart, but it turned out to be way to stiff with the current settings. So I'd like to make some adjustments but since it's my first time, I have no idea what I'm doing. On the rear dampers there are knobs, but there's nothing similar on the front shocks. So how do I change the front damping ? Also, does cornering weight has effects on damping strength ? Thanks for help !

    Some of the responses on here are unbelievable..

    Anyway, OP did you get the kit new? Who installed it? The adjustable Spax dampers I've had in the past have always been bottom adjustable on the rear via knobs as you say, and top adjustable on the front, using a plastic knob to adjust that comes separate with the kit.

    I assume the adjusting mechanism will be less adjustable after having seized up due to exposure to the elements especially salt and molasses treated wintry roads.

    Thanks for the answers. Sorry, I forgot where I posted this question and just found it. So the problem was, that I didn't have the manual so I wasn't sure where the adjustment knob should be attached (since they said it's on-car adjustment). It turned out I had to take the whole front + headlights off, as the top of the strut already got rusted and I had problems moving it even so slightly through the servicing holes. It rides perfect now, but I think I'll take tho whole suspension off and send it to sand-cleaning and powder coating.
