how do you adjust the ride height on the rear coilovers anyone?

You should have a tool that you attach and then wind up or down, there may be a locking nut to losen first, sorry if this is not too clear but best i can describe.
But the rear of mine have spring and shock separate
Is it a case of getting different rear springs
The rear springs should be sitting on an adjusting plate that'll look a little something like this:
Often people take out the adjuster (blue bit in this case) to get an extra few mm, if this has been done you will be unable to adjust height without it.
Hope this helps!
Cheers bud I'll take a look now
use a C spanner to wind the adjuster plate down. or take it out to drop it to its lowest
When I use the C spanner on mine.. The whole lot spins! Very annoying
jack the car up to take some weight off or do the nut up tighter which holds the adjuster plate in place
