Different rear adjusters for ohlins R/T?

I must say I love the Ohlins but the rear adjusters plain suck, they spin when you go to adjust them and use the stupid spring pockets. If they did not use the spring pocket you could just loosen the shock nut step on hub and pop them out, adjust them put them back in. Instead you have to take a bunch of other stuff loose (LCA) to get them out and adjust them and reinstall. I know some drill holes in the adjusters and bolt them and keeps them from spinning but that is just plain ridiculous.

I believe Ohlins are a 65MM spring so does anyone have suggestions on another rear adjuster that can be inserted into chassis without the spring pocket....similar to ST, BC BR, ect?

What exactly do you mean, are you talking about the height adjuster notched collar rings? Can you not get to them when the coils are on the car? Can you not tighten them when you have them adjusted like you want them?

You can get to them but when you go to adjust them they spin in the spring pocket. If they didn't use the spring pocket I could easily pop them out adjust and pop back in...spring pocket cup won't allow this. Not a huge deal, I can just remove strut bike step on Jun and have wife adjust them.

You can use HPA rear height adjusters with a 60-65mm spring adaptor:
