CSX4973 has been on the road for about 8 months and 2000 miles now.  I had the suspension aligned and set when I first got the car on the road.  Recently I have noticed that the rear tires rub if I go over a bump at speed.  I am not sure if the suspension has "settled" or something else.  How difficult is it to raise the back a little bit?  The car drives great and tracks straight.

Thanks,
David

Ride height is pretty simple using a coil-over shock spanner wrench similar to the one pictured on this page http://www.sachserodshop.com/pdf/261.pdf.

This was my first step to doing my own alignment of the car...entire alignment process took a long time for me but I am extremely happy with what I was able to do.

Thanks,  they are almost local to me (about 20 miles).  I'll pick up one of those adjustable spanner wrenches and go to town.
