Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
The front end of my cambry scrapes the curbs. Can the shocks in the front be raised by an inch or two easily. - thanks

The shock do not control the height of the car it is the suspension coil spring that determines the ride height of the car. Perhaps the springs are sagged but changing ride height effects steering geometry handling ect...
Has your car stock tires and stock suspension components or has someone "lowered the car".
Perhaps but talk to a tire store the cheapest thing to do is put taller tire on the car. Going to a taller tire side wall would raise the car one inch.
Before replacing the front struts on my v-6 camry the front end would occasionally bottom out. As recommended I replaced the struts, and it has not bottomed out again. I have noticed higher riding height. I replaced with good KYB's. I've been told by Toyota and other mechs that it is rare for the springs on this vehicle to fail.
