Default Shock adjustment/ride height

I want to increase my ride height a bit I have tires rubbing over big swales in the road.

Does anyone know what the correct wrench(s) is and where I can buy it. A couple years ago I ordered a couple from Summit and they are not correct.

Thanks

You may not like the look of the car after you raise the ride height.
I experienced much the same thing and ended up replacing all four shocks and springs with adjustable shocks and heavier springs.
The ride height remains unchanged, but the handling and bouncing have dramatically improved.

Default I don't want to take it up a lot

The car was not rubbing and now it does occasionally. Its pretty low so I think I can take it up a bit without changing the look drastically and stop the rubbing.

Thanks for the reply.

Bill - FYI
The proper ride height for SPF Cobra's are 22 1/2". Measured from the centre of the bottom lip of the rim to the centre of the fender

Default Is it a single number?

I am running 18" wheels.

The link I provided show ride height by rim size.

Looks like 24" is your magic number. Didn't realize you are running 18" wheels. Good luck!
