Suspension Options on e34

Hello, I'm new here but have been searching this forum on various topics. Alot of good information here.

I did have a specific question on suspension options for my '95 540i. It currently lowered with H&R's/Bilsteins but that is the way I purchased the vehicle and I while I do like it, I would also like a way to adjust the shock dampening and ride height.

I believe the Koni's have adjustable dampening and are pretty good quality but I haven't been able to find any adjustable height suspension options for the e34. Mainly interested in this because I'd like the front wheel gap just a BIT lower and the rear wheel gap just a BIT higher.

Not sure if its just sagging springs and time to replace them or if that's just the way they are. Any adjustable shock/spring combo suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
