Hello,
Please let me know the VIN of your car and the size of the tires installed now

JACUSTOMER-vxk8aypk- :

Tire 195/55/16

JACUSTOMER-vxk8aypk- :

vin WDD1690082J2878 Tire 195/55/16

Stan :

The VIN seems to miss 2 numbers, can you please re/check it?

JACUSTOMER-vxk8aypk- :

WDD1690082J212878 sorry for that.

Stan :

Dave, the biggest recommended tire size for your car is 195/60/16. You can lift the suspension by selecting the hardest possible springs. Front spring part number is ***** for the hardest one. It has 6 white markings on them. You can have a look on the ones you have. one red marking is the softest and then it goes up to 6 white marks.

Stan :

the A1693243404 rear springs will give you the maximum raise in the back.

Stan :

regards,
Stan
