I think any motorbike (or maybe even pedal bike) shock absorber / steering suspension wrench

NB - It's much easier to lessen the pre-load as of course the tension gets less as you ease off the spring - it is making the suspension firmer that takes the brute strength (or a shock adjuster spanner).
(- it would make a good item for your Xmas pressie list)
