shock adjustment

I have a pair of some old Monroe gas-matic shocks in the rear of my 92 LX. Everytime i go over a bump or dip at like 20-25mph, that plastic piece that cradles the gas tank bottoms out. I was wondering if i can raise my rear end up an inch or two just by adjusting the shocks?

I don't think you will be able to get 1 or 2 inches out of a shock adjustment. The springs are what set the height of the car. While shocks might add a little, maybe like a 1/2 inch if they are really strong.

Try replacing the spring isolators maybe. Although, I don't think there is 1 or 2 inches to be gained there either.

What springs are in there now?
