RST Gila T5 plus lockout help

I have a 2005 specialized hard rock sport disc with these shocks. They are currently seized but were like that when I got it. Any idea where/how to disengage the lockout mechanism if there is such a thing? I have tried spinning the knobs on the top of the fork to no avail.

Dont know about the lockout but ifits cold (< 0 deg) where you are the elastomers may be very rigid. The knobs on the top of cheap RST's are usually pre-load and dont do a hell of a lot anyway. Could be the fork is just stuffed. A cheap effective replacement is http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/TWBIKESHO...item231a47b2da
