Question 74 nova rear end

Can anyone here give me some idea's about raising the rear end of my 1974 chevy nova, so that the body will not scrape away the big wide tires I have on there when I hit bumps,potholes,etc. Im 16 and don't know much and my dad hasn't been giving me much help-lol. Thanks for the help if you can.

Have you tried new shocks? check your leaf springs. a cracked leaf-spring or soft worn out shocks will do that. nixter63

I already put in new air-shocks and all the metal looks fine to me and everyone else at the impound lot who know about cars.

You said that yu have wide tires on your car but you did not say how wide they are. you might look at another style wheel that would set back a bit deeper into the wheel housings. You may have tires that are too large in diameter. If its not anything that Nixter63 or I have said, someone else may have the answer for you.
