Question on coilovers

Ok, I wanna lower my car, but I'm always afraid I'm gonna scrape when I come up on a speed bump or some kinda dip. Now I know you can adjust a coilover's height, but how do you do that? Is there a control module you can get (pretty sure Tien makes these, but don't know if they have'em for our cars) or is there some other way?

as far as i know, its like a wrench system that you screw around the base where the springs sit and it lifts them or loweres them!! Someone correct me if im wrong, i dont have them sooo...

Every coilover I've seen is adjusted by using something like a wrench to turn a set of collars on the strut. The computer controlled stuff controls the dampening of the struts. For ride height you'd always have jack up the car, maybe take off the wheel (the fronts I can manage with the wheel on, but backs no). You just have to learn to watch your driving and you can easily avoid most scrapes.
