See the black ring? That's the coil mount. It's threaded, and you turn it left or right, to adjust the height of the coil mount point. That adjusts how high or low your car is. You have to jack the car up so it doesn't have the weight of the car pushing down on the mount. You can literally adjust the whole car in your driveway in 30 mins.

I was going to get TCKline's Single Adjustables as it would be my ideal setup for autocrossing and tracking; you can select your spring rate and they will valve the shock properly, but I realized this is my daily driver and I had to make some sacrifices on getting a setup that's more comfortable for daily driving, hence I ended up with the PSS10, otherwise TCKline's for sure.
