    not a garage job as such, if your altering height then the wheels need to come off. Then, using the "C" spanners you can wind them up/down accordingly.

    Some people measure the bottom of the thread of the damper to where the the ring is as a method to get all corners the same height.

    do all 4 corners have to be the same height as it looks like the back of my car sits lower then my front.

    What i mean is can i just adjust the front a bit like 10mm and leave the back or will this cause un even tyre ware

    no, you'll be OK, its quite common (I have done too) for people to lower the fronts a bit more than the back.

    It wont cause uneven tyre wear. If your seeing that, get some tracking and 4 wheel alignment done to see if thats out at all
