Post 67 camaro lift kit?

I have a 67 camaro and would like to raise it slightly. Any ideas what the easiest method would be? It has a small block in it and I heard putting big block springs will work. I appreciate any input. thanks

How much is slightly? If you install "new" springs the car will lift up an inch or two anyway, depending on how worn the old springs are.

just a couple inches would be fine I think. I think new springs would also improve the ride as well. Just wanted to know if the big block springs would lift a bit more or if new ones would be good enough.

The big springs have a substantially higher spring rate, but I think the actual coil stack is the same height. I don't think you can make the ride height a lot higher because of the geometry of the suspension and its design. It is the reverse of an intention to lower the ride height, there is a limit. I found that the suspension would top out rather more quickly than to bottom out. But the cost of the springs is only about $80, you can try it.
