'95 Sable sits too low.

My wife has been complaining for a long time about her '95 Sable sitting too low for her to get in and out comfortably. She loves the car which is in good condition and for its age has only 74K on the odometer. Since it is FWD is it possible to raise the height 2-3 inches without interruption the ride and handling. If yes can it be done by simply using longer springs or struts.

The front geometry doesnt really allow for raising the ride height.

you might look at just raising the seats a little
i'm about to do this with my parents car for my mother

you can raise the car with a strut spacer, but you will have big job on your hands and an alingment also, not my first choice

also a size or two taller tires (if there is room in the fender opening) will help
