You can, as already stated lift or lower the front or rear without affecting the corner balance - but you have to do EXACTLY the same to both sides. I use a 1 Deg rake - front downwards. You can do this with a spirit level along door sills. Once you get corner balance pretty right. You can calculate this out but over a spirit level of about 760mm you need about 12 mm height difference between the ends. Any other length is proportional. These may not be exactly right (memory) but are close. I can calculate it exact if you need precise numbers.
You can set overall height more or less where you want it - driveway etc permitting, but I believe the front down rake is to compensate for the squat the car takes up under power.
If you had a driveway issue you could compromise by taking a bit out of the front, but hopefully maintaing a front down rake. Or raise the whole car.
