You have to unbolt the rear shock, compress it all the way (can be done by hand), then turn to adjust. It's a fairly simple and easy procedure, requires a 19mm socket and a jack. Since you don't adjust them much at all once they're dialed in, you don't have to pay extra for the "externally adjustable" feature.

If you don't get externally adjustable shocks for the front, you need a whole lot more tools and time to adjust the fronts. There is where it's worth the extra money to get the externally adjustable feature. That's one reason why they're $215 each (retail).
