I have no direct experience with Wilber shocks, but I'd be concerned about putting a lot of torque on the rebound adjuster mechanism. It would be nice to have some coil spring compressors to remove the tension on the parts. If you don't have them, it might help to back off the spring tensioning rings as far as you can and maybe use a bit of spray grease where there will be some metal-on-metal sliding. Still would be worried about the effect on the rebound adjuster since I have no idea how it's constructed. Good luck.

I'm really not the one to give advice. I'm new to all of this. My guess is that what you are calling a nipple is a set screw for compression damping? If that's what you are referring to, what does the manual say about it. It looks to have some witness marking with paint so perhaps it is set from the factory and does not need to be accessed. Hopefully some of the other people on here who know what the are talking about will wade in. Nice looking shock, BTW.
