Ajust rear suspension

Can the stock strat deluxe rear suspension be adjusted to a lower position without buying any parts?

YES - just back off the preload on the rear spring, your bike will sit lower in the back.

Add preload = Higher ride height
Remove preload = Lower ride height

Both will effect handling.

Removing preload will tend to bottom out the suspension over bumps.
