I vote for lowered the same all the way around
Either level, or no more than 1/2" higher in the rear. I'm at about 24" front 24.5" rear on mine. And I didn't take out that pinch bolt like the manual says to(because it was stuck) I unbolted the control arms from the bracket the control arms and strut mount to. Think it was pretty easy that way too, just have to be smart about how you're doing it.
