1st Things First - Ride Height
Springs determine ride height. But the shocks are gas charged and have 75 lbs each so the car will ride a little higher if blown shocks are replaced. The rear sub frame mounts can go, resulting in a lower ride height. Springs last a very long time so if the shocks are really old, try replacing them.
