There may not be a better way, but worst-case, just removing the shock is easier.
The RaceTech equiv of that motionpro tool is a little easier to use too, but doesn't materially change the job. WOW, having to add 5-6mm of preload is RIDICULOUS.
Another wonderful Wilbers out of box experience eh? What kind of static sag did you end up with. Dollars to donuts, you had to do that because they sprung it very softly. I could be wrong though, as they sometimes nail it, and it's always good to learn more, so let us know the corresponding front static sag number too. Do you know your front spring rate?

Good luck with it. You'll learn a lot this way.
