Adjusting shock settings on 1977

Does anyone know if you need a special wrench to adjust the rear suspension?
Mine is set at the lowest and seems to sloppy for 2up riding.

May be too late but yes you need a special spanner to adjust the shocks. Should be able to get one from any bike shop. Most are the same.
