Stock Sport Shocks Adjustment?

Recently I added a cage and seats to our Teryx. Since these modifications I've noticed the rear of the Rex is slightly sagging. Does anyone know what the best way is to adjust the shocks to compensate for this? Or is it even possible with the stock suspension? I wasn't sure if I should adjust the springs or the compression screw......
Thanks in advance!

You could change the ride height a little by tightening the spring a few turns, but it will make the ride a lot rougher when you do not have anyone in the rear

I was afraid of that. I actually like the way it rides better since adding the cage. Just thought I may be able to raise the rear slightly. Thanks....

I tightened up our rear springs a bit over t-day. Its a bit better, but I had an issue with one of those nut things on the shock spring, so I wasnt able to get it perfect.

How much does BB's ' rex sag ? Ours doesn't sag much.

Not much of a sag, just enough to catch my eye. Just thought it may be a easy fix. I know your running a bed delete so you prob have a little less weight in the back.

worst part of the sag is your tires will rub on the fenders and your steering will be light crank those springs ROCK hard and then nobody will want to ride back there than you can soften it up again thats why I went to a 2 seater
