So I’m fatter then I should be. I need to adjust the sag. I know how to do it, at least as far as loosening to lock nut and then spinning the spring nut, BUT, I can’t get the top nut to loosen.

I don’t have the spanner wrench. But all the YouTube video show just using a punch to break it loose, like easy peasy.

the threads don’t look damaged or rusted. Is there some trick I can try?

PD Blaster or some other release agent, let it sit for 24 hours. I have used a punch and hammer to tap the top keeper ring loose, and turning, usually takes quite a few taps CCW to get it to come off. Not sure what YouTube shows...

After removal I always brush clean (SS Brush) the threads as clean as possible, remove burrs and repair the threads with a small Jewelers file before installing back on.
