Raise it up. Sell off your factory fenders and hood to defray the costs.

By now you should know shocks are not used to raise the car. While KYG white gas shocks will the correct way is to cut and turn the front beam and re-index your stock rear torsion bars or use thicker ones. Bilstien makes Class 11 shocks that work.

It is the reverse of how you lowered it. Smile
Myself and I suppose other members of AZBAJA am wondering why you do not have the Building Bajas and Buggies Book. Shocked

If I were you, I would raise it and make it a class 11 style. Less money, less work and less complaining from yur parents.

A nice example
