    Front is simple- screw adjuster at rear of torsion bar. Rear is not easy without adjustable spring plates- torsion bars must be removed and re-indexed.

    Be aware that you are changing your alignment and corner weighting by adjusting ride heights, so these parameters should be checked and adjusted at the same time. If front is lowered too far, you will have to deal with bump steer issues as well.
