weld in adjusters or buy a beam the already has him in place. and to answer your other question, you'll need longer tie rods as well...

the beam is like a crad board roll of TP. if you cut the center out and rotate it a 1/4" or so it will roatate your traling arms down the same amount of degrees, this will lift the car, do not go hog wild on this or you will realy screw stuf up.

Most people say 1/4" to give about 3-4" of lift. More than that and stuff gets in a bind and steering gets out of wack
