Default My coilovers are stuck. What do I do?

So I bought some second hand coilovers awhile back, and let them sit awhile, since I didn't plan on doing anything with them. Now that I'm gearing up to install all of my air suspension pieces, I've found that the lower shock body won't budge on all of the coilovers, and the lower locking collar on two of them. This has pretty much brought my build to a halt since I can't actually slip my bags on without extending them accordingly. Anybody have any ideas on what I could do, or where I could take them to have them "un-stuck"? (I lack tools)

So far, I've bathed them in PB Blaster, but I have no actual tools to "knock" them free, or even hold them in place to hit with something.

Use a heavy rubber mallet to hit the spanner wrench and use rags to hol the wrench against the perch so when you hit the wrench it won't slip off the perch. It's pretty easy

sounds like a plan ^ ^ ^, guess i will have to take the wheels off the fronts then since i don't think i can hit it with any strength with the wheels on.
