Via the clamp on the roll bar.....did you loosen it during your work ?
if not ?, have you got the dog bone on correctly ?

as always....car on a RAMP

Fine tuning of height can also be done via Lexia.
Easier and less frustrating provided your Lexia decudes to talk to the car!

I don't think you can do the adjustment on stands....the car needs to be level I think, 4 x ramps or a ramp-lift

Yes, as sticky has said, adjust it via the clamp on the arb. Car needs to have all 4 wheels on the level with engine running.
