Looking at tires and giving some thought to raise my squareback up just a little to have a bigger tire selection to choose from. Currently I am running 195/50 R15 up front and in the rear 195/55 R15. Would like to go to a narrower all season tire.
Can someone tell me what it takes to raise the car up a bit?

The process is the same as lowering, only opposite. The type three is adjustable front and rear by simply re-indexing the splines.

A 195-55-15 is shorter than a spec 165-15. Replacment would help your freeway cruising speed if you get back to a tyre with the correct diameter.

Found what I needed. A friend from the Mid-Columbia club in Tri-Cities told me about a youtube post of actually lowering the front and back of a 69 Square. Very informative! Just what I needed to do the job.
