I used a 18" wrench to turn the installation tool, and it was on needle bearings to reduce friction. The amount of force it took to press on that damper surprised me, it was a workout.
I was like needle bearings? What? Then I got that they're in the silver thing behind the nut. Neat.
(I yanked these from your install thread if that's ok):
