Raise '03 IRS by ~1" how to?

I'd like to raise my '03 IRS rear ride height by 1/2" to 1". Is there a pretty easy way to do this without spending a fortune?

Find someone installing aftermarket springs and buy the stockers from them.
Or make a wanted thread.

You did not state what springs you have now.

Jimmy,

You are right. Sorry 'bout that!

OK. The tag on the spring reads BCR and 3R3V-5560-BA and the spring itself has a little blue stripe on it, hand made, about 3/4" long on the outside of one of the coils.

I tried Googling but couldn't find that part number. Can anyone tell me from these numbers whether I have coupe or convertible rear springs in the 2003 Cobra rear?

Tom

PS: I also have a new set of Hypercoil springs marked FD001RSA 127-03, but can't find any info about how their installed height might compare with the Ford springs noted above. Does anyone have the installed height info?

PPS: After further review it looks like I have convertible springs, tag BCR. I'd like to swap them for a set of coupe springs, tag ACR. Anyone got some?

They list these too but don't say what diameter they are.
