Default Hks hipermax ls+ help please!!!!

Hey everyone,
I recently purchased a set of used Hks hipermax ls+ coilovers for my gs300.
i have them all installed but in the rear i notice its off bu about a 1 inch or so on the passanger side compared to the drivers side..
i have the coilover spring perches on both sides all the way up and it sits lower on the drivers side..
How do you adjust the height on these coilovers.. i have read other threads and it seems like there are different opinions on how to adjust the height. some people say to adjust the spring its self and others are saying to unbolt the shock from the lower arm and turn the whole shock???

can anyone please help me out

thanks alot guys
here is a pic for reference on the coilovers

i don't get it,

don't you just turn the little sprocket looking dealio with the included wrench to adjust the height?

also, are you leaking? one might be blown or on its way out if you matched up the threads properly for height and still getting a weird dip.

I think it's like what the guy above stated. Those shocks look to be adjustable only by turning the coil spring perch, not the shock body.
