How to adjust DSE front coilovers

I need to adjust my front ride height (raise the front) a bit to see if I can stop some tire rubbing. I have the DSE coilovers, control arms, etc. I know how to adjust the shocks as I have already done that on the rear, but need to get them out first. I have removed coil springs before with a compressor, but with a coilover shock on the front, I'm not sure how to proceed. My floor jack is also busted right now, but I have a car lift, which is probably why I have not fixed my floor jack. I also have jack stands, and I need to do both sides at the same time.

For those with the same front DSE setup, what are the things to remove in what order to get the shock out ? I was trying to do this using a combination of my lift and jack stands, ie using my lift as a floor jack in reverse.

Any help is appreciated.
