    Tein coilover question

    I recently purchased a 2004 STi that the previous owner had fitted with Tein struts and the EDFC system. The struts and controller are still present but for whatever reason the stepping motors have been removed. I haven't removed a wheel yet to verify but I suspect the struts/coilovers are the Mono Flex ones. The ride is quite stiff and I would like to soften it. My questions are:

    A) Is there anyway to manually adjust the struts to the softest setting? This could have been done with the EDFC controller but as I said the stepping motors have been removed. Can I somehow turn the shafts manually that the stepping motors would have turned and if so, do I turn them clockwise or counterclockwise to soften the ride?

    B) At the softest setting, how stiff is the suspension relative to the stock configuration? I may just revert to this setup if I can't adjust the Tein hardware or if the ride is still too stiff.

    I've attached a couple of photos showing the top of one of the strut mounts.

    Thanks for any advice and help.
