Questions?? Shock Re-build

I'm going to re-build my 13mm big bore shocks... a couple of the caps are on really tight; they seem stuck. Does anyone have any tips on the best way to open the caps without damaging them?

These are the OFNA big bores, by the way.

I'm not sure if the OFNA ones have anything to "grip" like the Jammin ones do... but what I do is put a wrench on the hex-shaped part, and a wrench through where the shock bolt goes if I have a stubborn one.

The CEN ones have a grippy area at the top and i use channel locks on that part and put a screwdriver through the shock mounting hole
