Coilover suspension

Hi,
Last Friday I finally received my FK coilover suspension. When opening the box I immediately noticed the rear didn't have adjustable dampers. I've been reading the largaass catalogue over and over and it is quite vague about what you'll get. There are footnotes telling me that the indeed the rear is eqiupped with 40mm springs but it is followed with "height adjustable" in preparation.

Nevertheless my car now is lowered in front by nearly 70mm instead of 50mm with the fixed Novitec set but the rear went from -50mm to -40mm, so in fact it's been highered. Well there are some options which I would like to check with you guys. One: to extra compress the springs (bad for dampers?) and use lowering clamps?, Two: to just cut the springs (which will make me lose gaurantee), Three: order -60mm lowering dampers and springs.
