Default raising a car

how much does it cost to raise the back of a car like 1/2-3/4"?
After my new setup I have like 100 lbs in the trunk and the car is sagging and with people in the back it gets pretty low, to the point where there is absolutely no gap on the top of the tire and without a system or people there's usually a 2" gap.

that's something I can't do, I have no experience in any car work other than changing oil and the system. I'm getting rims tomorrow and gonna see how much the shop charges me for raising the car a bit, just don't wanna get charged a ridiculous amount and think I got a good deal

Actually, since your car has separate shocks and springs, you could get these;

Air Lift 1000 Load Assist Rear Spring Kits - SummitRacing.com

having a shop install them should be less than $200

Each cylinder has an inflation valve, so you can vary the air pressure to level your vehicle and compensate for uneven loads. does that mean I can adjust the ride height if I have more or less weight?
