Question Vehicle ground clearance '94 Legend Sedan

Can anyone tell me a simple and effective way to increase my ground clearance 2 or 3 inches? This winter, I will have to drive on some pretty rough back roads and my Legend sits quite low. It is an older car, with over 90k miles so maybe new springs would do the job. I also wonder about using body or spring spacers. Maybe air shocks? I don't know. Can anybody in this forum give me some direction with this issue?

To raise it would call for a stiffer ride legends have a wide low stance from factory.

Maybe you should consider getting a more reasonable daily driver in the winter to eliminate the problems with the low ride of the Legend. Say like a Honda Element or CR-V.

Red face wrong place to get help

This may be he wrong place to get help with my winter driving problem. If I had the funds to buy a Pilot, Element or CRV, I would not bother you Acura Enthusiasts. I understand that a Legend is a sport luxury car and year round use is expecting a lot. I have been a 'Honda Man' for many years and I have a tendency to consider Honda vehicles to be 'bulletproof'.

Look maybe this isn't the site for you! He just offered his opinion there's no need to be smart! You wanna raise your car when it's def not meant for that! So here's my smart answer get air ride which is about 3-6k then you can raise and lower as you please but since you can't afford that as you stated get some coil overs that's about 2k and raise it up! This is your only warning!

OP I had the same issue since I have a Bodykit, What I did was add rubber spacers. They can be found on Ebay or at Summit racing. They come in 1" - 2" and 3" versions. It will get you through the winter. Also going to a higher profile tire can help with ground clearance.
