I haven't really looked at it yet (overworked at the moment; haven't even had a chance to pick up a manual for it), but the aftermarket spring suppliers are listing this car as "rear adjustable spring only." Thanks in advance, I'm looking forward to hearing from the crowd.
you could start by removing the washers and flushing the nut & bolt will give it a nice look as for rear well either buy the setup or heat up the springs and compress them to be shorter for a budget other then that you can cut the springs to see how low you want it start by cutting half coil only but highly advise to get another set from the junkyard so you can have a set to play with and a set to do the final touch just my opinion but I never heard of being able to insert the bars in from the opposite side I'll be trying this after winter as it snows in Idaho
