Default Stock suspension adjustment

Just got my ms3, as far as I know it has stock springs but I found what looks to be a suspension adjustment key in the globebox, I was just wondering if there was any way to either loosen or tighten or lift or drop the suspension.
Any help?

Hack-saw to the springs works great

Describe the key, is it a spanner wrench or hex wrench? It's possible the previous owner had some type of coilovers that can be adjusted with said tools. Look at the dampers or color of the springs to see if they truly are stock.

This ^

But ya go and see what you've got under there. If it's stock, the only adjustment to ride height you're going to have is by putting sand bags in the car to squat it down.
