Coil Over Shock Adj....Correct Method

Ok...My 36 ford needs slight adj in the adjustable coil overs to rebalance the car...it has aldan shocks on it...I ordered a spanner wrench from summit for 30 bucks...its about 1/8 inch thick metal with a handle and adjustable....I jacked the rear of the car up, took the tire off and made my adjustment ...it was physically easy as the adjusting nut was all the way backed off to start and the spring loose....frontend was a different story...jacked the car up, took the wheel off and made my adjustment ...both sides were already about an inch adjusted before I started so there was plenty of compression on the spring...anyway, it was physically difficult to adjust...I moved it about 1/4 inch at most...its like compressing the spring from an already compressed position and with the lite duty tool I have it aint easy...anyway I have two questions...is there an easier way to do the frontend and should I be using a beefier tool...thanks..craig
