There is a collar adjustment (at least on KW V3's). Your mechanic will raise or lower that collar to adjust the height. Typically, you set it, lower the car so it's sitting on it's suspension, remeasure the height, then lift it back up and adjust the collar to get the final height you want.
If your mechanic is any good, you should only have to say "put these bad boys on and dive me a 3/4" drop."
Would you recommend a 3/4" drop in the front and the back or should one be more than the other?
