FSD's, ride height and alignment.

I'm planning a Koni FSD install, and wanted to get a few things straight in my head before I started the work.

I've ridden and modified motorcycles for many years, and am very skilled mechanically. However, I'm still new to cars, so chassis geometry and suspension is not something I know a lot about. So I have some questions.

1. Do the FSDs provide any way to adjust ride height? I'm not looking to lower the car, just adjust it to factory specifications. Possibly, I'd even raise it just a bit to get some more clearance on speed bumps.

2. Does the car need to be aligned after I replace the struts, assuming no other changes are made?

3. Does the car need to be aligned after I adjust the ride height?
