Self-Leveling Adjustment 16V

Does anybody know how to properly adjust the height of the rear self leveling suspension on a 16V. Do I adjust the length of the turn buckle or do I loosen the pinch bolt on the sway bar? I understand that this valve is some sort of three way valve and I would hate to mess up the neutral setting (ie not filling or draining). Any help would be appreciated. I want to raise the rear a little bit.

Lengthen the rod to raise the rear end. There are "jam" nuts both right hand & left hand thread that you need to break loose to adjust.
