If I remember correctly you need to rotate the rod counterclockwise and pull. They are not gas charged shocks which normally expand under no pressure.

Yep, just twist the shaft end ccw and they should extend. They do have slight pressure in them so they will slowly extend up. When you go to put them on, compress them and turn the shaft cw so they lock again. It makes install easier. Let me know what numbers you set them too. I put mine on last weekend and have 5F-4R and seems to be doing well.
