Lord, what sized rims are those? The only good way to properly lower the car is to install a set of coilovers. The factory units only have so much adjustment. It appears your rim choice might be a limiting factor as well, Porsche does not recommend over an 18" wheel on a 964.

Yes, they are a type of coilover system, but are limited with adjustment due to the spring rate. If you want to lower the car, you need to go to lower springs, or a coilover system.
