Default Raising 95 accord lx

Alright it may seem a bit dumb to do but I want a body kit for my accord. I cannot find a body kit with a bumper that isn't basically touching the ground though. The problem is I live in a small town where the road may as well be dirt. It has potholes speed bumps(that come to think of it are surprisingly large about 6 inches to be exact) and such forth, so I thought about raising the car about 2 inches in hopes I won't rip my bumper completely off. I can't sell it either because the car only has 90k mile on it and it is my first car. I know nothing about the suspension so I need you guys to help me out with doing this or any suggestions you may have that prove to be much more efficient or cost reducing than to raise the height of the vehicle.

Welcome to HAF.

Strange that the kits would be that low? So you might want to have someone check the "ride height" and see if you are starting from a stock/OE height.

If you are starting below OE height, might be as simple as new springs and struts.

If you are at OE height and need more, you might look into front springs from a V6. Not sure how much more that will get you....?
