Increasing Car Height

Postby Lightning » Sat Jul 06, 2013 3:23 am

I have lowering springs n' I would like to raise the height of the car as cheaply as possible due to where live.I have heard of rubber pacers that go over the shocks Any tips?

Thanks

i have a pair of standard shocks and springs if you want them then you can swap them over and not worry about a bodged up spring spacer that i doubt would fit into a lowered spring.

there not a bodging item only they are really used for heavy loading of car or towing a caravan/trailer they do not increase the ride height only make it stiffer so not to bottom out when towing

Thanks for the responses. I really don't want to change the springs; I just need to increase the ride height a bit. Just want a very cost effective way of doing so....

isn't any way you can increase the ride height, just change the springs and shocks rather than the springs then as only 3 bolts on top and 1 on the bottom of the shock 10-20 min per side if that
