Adjust end links when altering ride height?

I think the answer is yes, but I just had a shop install some Tein Flex Z on my car (love em) with Whiteline adjustable endlinks and need to change rear ride ride height. I set everything according to the Tein's manual spec pre-installation yet theres a .5" difference between front and rear height now. Going to raise the rear so its even, and am guessing I will need to adjust the endlinks accordingly? How do I even tell if im running pre-load? Which ill try to neutralize.

Thanks as always.

Nice vid. Thanks. In the absence of hub stands I'm guessing you need ramps to access the end links.

Rears you can do with the car on the ground pretty easily, fronts would be basically impossible.

Just get rid of the rear sway bar and you need rear end links.
