Adjusting rear coils

Whats up guys, Im about to drop my car again for the summer and just want to confirm with you guys on how to adjust the rear coils because I've found different answers. Do I adjust the strut by itself or the spring also? I always thought if I were to adjust the spring it would mess with the preload. So how do you guys adjust the rear coils? Both spring and strut or just the strut?

It depends on the coilover system. Some have preload settings and some dont.
