Most coilovers do a lousy job of raising a car. Most will say they lower a car something like 1.5 to 3.0 inches (a range). What that means is that they "start" with a 1.5" drop and only get lower not necessarily any taller. I thought K sports had two adjustments 1) the shock body could be lengthened or shortened by adjusting the lower portion of the shock/strut body and 2) spring compression (although a poor way to raise or lower a car as it impacts suspension travel). That said, I believe the K Sports are good at lowering but little else.
