In regards to more information on Stance:
1. Standard setup is now 9kg/6kg as listed on Stance website with the 200mm springs, the longer ones, for the rear.
2. Stance adjuster on GR+ and Pros is Single Adjustable REBOUND. Rebound is what's always adjusted. Compression should remain pretty constant. Tokico illuminas and Dspecs however adjust both damping curves simultaneously. KYB AGX and Koni are all single Rebound adjustable.

Alright so I made a video of how to setup the REAR RX8 coilovers. They have an unconventional design so I took the initiative to give you the basics.
Step 1: Reset all spring preloads
Step 2: Install on car
Step 3: Put car on ground and take baseline measurements
Step 4: Determine where you want the car to sit.
i.e. If car is ground to fender at 25" and you want 26", please note the 1" Difference or whatever the delta is on each corner.
Step 5: Put car back in air. Adjust front coilover lower brackets with their respective "delta" value. Meaning up or down 1", whichever direction. Since we're raising the car the bracket goes in a direction to "lengthen" the unit.
VIDEO WILL HELP YOU HERE" STEP 6
Step 6: REAR COILS: remove lower bolt so that the coilover has some room to drop the spring. you might need to remove a suspension arm to gain clearance. Remove spring, then loosen the small inner collar that remains so you can adjust the ride height/inner tube by 1".
Step 7: Once bracket is position and locked into place you can install the spring, washer, spring perch, and locking collar. Add the preload back to the spring.
HERE'S THE PROBLEM PEOPLE HAD AND NOW YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO VISUALIZE IT:
1. WHEN YOU RAISE OR LENGTHEN THE REAR DAMPER, IT REMOVES PRELOAD FROM THE SPRING SO YOU NEED TO ADD PRELOAD BACK TO IT.
2. WHEN YOU LOWER OR SHORTEN THE REAR DAMPER, IT ADDS PRELOAD TO THE SPRING SO YOU NEED TO LOOSEN IT BACK TO NORMAL PRELOAD.
BY RULE OF THUMB FOR THE REAR YOU SHOULD ALWAYS REMOVE PRELOAD OR SPRING ALTOGETHER BEFORE MAKING THE HEIGHT ADJUSTMENTS. THEN BUT THE SPRING BACK OR ADD PRELOAD BACK AFTERWARDS.
